From the Tech-enhanced Life Resource Database:
Tools for improving the quality of life as we grow older — shared by the Tech-enhanced Life community.
GoGoGrandparent offers tailored senior services via the convenience of a phone call instead of an app for parents who are not smartphone owners or users. It allows elders to order rides with Uber, have meals delivered with Munchery, get anything delivered with Postmates for $5 a delivery, and all by calling a phone number.
From the website: "Order an Uber to your home by pressing 1; Order an Uber to where we deopped you off last by pressing 2; Same day meals by pressing 3; Order or reorder groceries by pressing 4; Get pharmaceuticals or adult toiletries by pressing 5.
Instant door to door rides: Drivers pull into the driveway. Wheelchair and specially trained drivers upon request. Get anything delivered: Pharmaceuticals, convalescent supplies, pet supplies. Put us to the test.
Q&A: What is Uber?
Uber is the famous ride-sharing service that connects riders to drivers. A car ride is never more than ten minutes away and often costs 50% less than a cab. Can I cancel my ride? Yes, as long as you're not already in a ride, you can cancel by calling in and pressing 9. Do I tip my driver? There is no need to tip the driver like in a taxi cab. Almost all Uber rides do not get a tip."

Tech-enhanced Life Resource Database
This is one of hundreds of products and resources in the Tech-enhanced Life database of "useful products and resources".
The theme of this collection of resources is "tools we can use to help improve our quality of life as we grow older".
We have no vested interest in any of these products or services, but we have collected descriptions of them, and organized them according to various themes relating to the challenges of aging — so older adults and their families can find useful products they do not yet know about.
Members of Tech-enhanced Life can search by categories, add reviews of the products, and see links to the manufacturer's websites where they can buy the products.
Note: If you want to support our work, please use these links when you buy any of the products we write about, as we sometimes get a small percentage of the sale from the manufacturer, which we use to support our research. (This does not effect the price you pay).
