Concierge services are more affordable now than ever before. In the past, only high-income families could afford the service. Now, senior citizens with fixed incomes can afford the services that include grocery shopping and delivery, prescription pick up, house cleaning, appointment arrangements, and other errands.
Large concierge service companies like Taskrabbit and NeedTo allow you to post tasks you need completed and review offers from professionals in the area. Be sure to screen and qualify individuals before hiring them.
