Types of shopping service

Escorted services

Our escorted shopping service for older adults in Leeds is designed for people who need a little assistance with transport and getting around the shops. As well as helping with the shopping, our service offers companionship whilst supporting you to be as independent as possible in your day to day life.

Home delivery services

If you don’t fancy going to the shops yourself or if you’re unable to get there, let us do your shopping for you. We’ll support you to write a shopping list, go to the shops on your behalf, bring your groceries home and put them away for you. As well as doing your shopping, your wellbeing worker will become a familiar friendly face and someone to chat to.

Internet shopping services

Would you like to order goods online but aren’t sure where to start? Maybe you don’t have access to the internet, or you’d like some help with using it. Our internet shopping service for older adults in Leeds can help. Whether you want support to order your weekly food shop, Christmas presents or even a new settee, your wellbeing worker will work with you to make it happen. This means you can reap the benefits of internet shopping, even if you don’t have access to a computer yourself.

Why use our shopping service?

Doing the weekly shop is an essential part of running a home, but getting out to the shops can become difficult when we get older. Our loved ones may lead busy lives, with work or family commitments, or they might live too far away to help out regularly.

Our shopping service in Leeds helps people stay independent, whilst also making sure they’re safe and well. Seeing a regular friendly face helps counter social isolation, and can act as a pre-emptive step to keeping older adults out of hospital, or the first step towards accepting more comprehensive care in the future.
