2020 has been challenging on nearly everyone, but there’s one segment of the population for whom the year has been especially hard: the over 65 crowd.
Deemed high risk for COVID-19, this group, who often already had feelings of abandonment and loneliness, has now found themselves even more isolated, often hesitant to run errands on their own and struggling to safely procure groceries, medications, or other necessities. It’s times like these that everyone needs a good neighbor to lend a helping hand. But what if they don’t have a friendly neighbor? Well, then they need a nabor.
Naborforce offers older adults backup sons and daughters for social engagement and on-demand support for errands, transportation, and help around the home through a network of carefully vetted, compassionate “nabors.”
At a time when travel to visit older parents may be difficult, and they may not feel safe running errands, a gift card for valuable services could prove to be a perfect, meaningful gift for those who often say they “don’t need a thing.”
“Naborforce can lend a friendly hand during this holiday season,” says Naborforce founder, Paige Wilson. “More importantly, we provide companionship and connection which is needed more than ever right now,” she says. “And besides, who needs another set of furry slippers.”
Much like today’s working moms struggling to keep all of the balls in the air during this challenging time, Wilson founded Naborforce after seeing the need first-hand while juggling a career, motherhood, and caring for her own aging mother.
A Naborforce gift card can be used for anything from helping around the house preparing meals or assisting with computer or smart phone issues, to general companionship such as playing card games, or accompanying clients on appointments or outings, or even running errands around town on behalf of clients. Services can be hourly or monthly plans are available.
