Hi,

The last thread I found on this subject was several years old, so apologies if this has been asked and answered recently, and I somehow missed it.

Anyway. After getting all set to move into my newly leased FW apt. next month, I unexpectedly & badly hurt my right (driving) knee, need extensive surgery, & now know I will be housebound indefinitely pre- & post-surgery & then under doctors' orders to drive v. minimally indefinitely after that.

So, all of sudden I have a new need to have my groceries delivered to my door for a while. (My apt. will be at The Villas at LeBlanc Park near the inters. of Granbury & S. Hulen.)

I've already called the local Kroger's, which doesn't deliver, and the local Albertson's, where a nice manager said they would in my case -- but from the way he put it, it didn't sound so much like across-the-board Albertson's policy as the manager who answered the phone being considerate. I may be wrong about that -- does anybody know?

And/or, are there any Ft. Worth equivalents of Peapod or Fresh Direct, where you grocery-shop on their websites, and the groceries you select are delivered to your door for a small extra fee?

I did Google "Fort Worth" and "food delivery," but came up only with services that deliver restaurant orders. And, alas, aside from that being too expensive except for a special treat, I need to maintain a healthy low-calorie, low-sodium diet for hypertension control, so do need fresh produce and non-processed/"fast food" food to cook myself.

Thanks in advance for any help. ...

Check with the local meals-on-wheels. They do cater to special needs.

You might look at one of the home health services, like Visiting Angels or Comfort Keepers. They will also help you with household stuff, too. If you're really that bad, you will likely need help with personal care, too.

I used to have Schwan's deliver milk and ice cream to my house in Dallas and I notice they have expanded their offerings.
Maybe they do FTW.

agree that you are going to need some home help if you will be driving restricted

find out what your insurance covers--
might be able to get someone from home health agency to do that and have insurance cover it

Albertsons' tried the home delivery for awhile, but the demand wasn't there to merit investing in a fleet of refrigerated trucks. There are several churches in your area that have folks that will help on a weekly basis. Just visit and ask.

Thanks for all the answers!

I will check that Roy Pope's, Lenora.

I'll also look into the meals specifically for the handicapped, though I am in the awkward position of not really neig handicapped, just lame. (I mean the orthopedic surgeons haven't & probably won't declare me handicapped; they are still fiddling. :/

If any more thoughts, do keep them coming. They are helpful!

When I broke my ankle last year I paid a nursing student to stop in 3x a week to walk my dogs, and dog some errands. She was here about 2 hours each time for a couple of months. I bet you could find a similar student for about $20 a week to go and pick up groceries for you.
