Concierge services in Miami are not just for high income hotel patrons. Concierge services are now widely available in the city and throughout Florida. A company can provide you or your loved one with an assistant to clean house, run errands, make appointments, pay bills, and take care of your pets. Housebound seniors may find concierge services to be invaluable.
Concierge services like Taskrabbit or Amazon Home Services can be a lifeline to seniors when they need repairs done around the house, lawn and garden care, or furniture to assemble. Taskrabbit allows you to post your task online and contractors in Miami can bid on the project. Amazon Home Services uses the Amazon dashboard and payment method you have set-up on your account to pay for services. You can choose prepackaged services or post special projects for quotes.
If you prefer to bypass the mass-market concierge services, you can find plenty of companies and apps in the Miami area.
