Grocery store delivery in WA state

Technology can help you support your aging loved ones across the country or around the block.


I personally am scared for my parents going into crowded grocery stores and exposing themselves to higher risk. Technology like GoldenSHERPA can bridge this gap. 


We have curated a list of grocery stores in the Washington state area that do home delivery/pickup. We have also included a new list of best practices for your ordering experience. If your parents aren't comfortable with online shopping, get them to send a grocery list to you and order for them!


Tips For Safe Pick Up

  1. Choose "no contact delivery" when available
  2. Wipe down groceries when they enter the house
  3. Be sure to wash produce before use
  4. Have a mode of contact available in case of questions
  5. Plan ahead as many services are seeing high demand and may have longer wait times
  6. Viewing a tutorial on Youtube may help you feel more comfortable with new services
