Envoy is an app providing concierge services for seniors who need some extra support with things like grocery shopping or running errands. Not meant to be an elderly caregiver service, this app is meant for those who don't need help with things like getting dressed, but just some added assistance with chores or errands.

While some may feel anxious hiring a stranger to do such personal things, Envoy has a rigorous hiring process. The five percent of applicants who are accepted go through a screening, background check and interview process, ending with training in concierge services at 'Envoy School.' For added reassurance, the mobile app sends notifications, receipts and photos to a caring loved one to document their activities.

This site boasts an affordable price that is unmatched by other similar senior services on the market.
