‘Shopping for’ Service
Our ‘shopping for’ service is extended to ALL residents over 65 years.
We want to ensure our older residents stay safe and supported. ‘Shopping for’ is a service where Council will undertake a weekly shop for residents, delivering goods to their doors.
Tony and Jill Bransberry are the first to take advantage of this service. The Glenunga couple are both in their 80s. “I am having trouble with my mobility,” says Tony. “I’m worried about everything that is going on out there (coronavirus).” His wife agrees saying, “Our daughter told us to stay at home so this service is excellent.” Council worker Sam, a swimming pool casual, picked up their shopping list and bags and did their shopping at Burnside Village then hand delivered to their door. Sam was redeployed when the pool season was cut short so she still receives her wage. “It is good to get out and about,” says Sam. “The only thing I couldn’t get for them was toilet paper."
