Being a caregiver isn’t easy. On top of balancing doctor’s appointments, running to the tutor and dealing with days that my teenager is completely out of spoons, I have to work so I don’t have a lot of free time. Over the years, I’ve put lots of things in place to stay organized and save time but I still find myself surprised by all kinds of unexpected things that crop up.
Last year, when my teenager was unable to eat or keep any food down, we had a month-long hospital stay that obviously wasn’t planned. She left the hospital with a feeding tube and a month later when she pulled it, her stomach was so small, it was hard to eat. When she started to lose weight, our doctors were worried and it was time to supplement her diet. While unlimited ice cream would’ve been her choice, she needed to get more nutrition. We chose Ensure because it had the calories and was balanced nutrition.
We’ve always shopped at Sam’s Club because the prices are amazing. Now we can not only save money, but lots of time with their caregiver program. Sam’s Club carries a wide variety of products that caregivers need on a continuous basis like Ensure, Poise and Depend. While I don’t mind walking into the store to pick up a case of Ensure, I can also order it online and have it delivered (which is great for the other products that you may want discretely delivered).
The thing that’s great about Sam’s Club is they give a variety of options for the caregiver to shop. I can order online and have it delivered to the store bypassing the lines, perfect for the holidays and the times when I just want to get out of the house. In store, I can use the Scan and Go option too. It’s easy to use once you download the app. All I have to do is scan the items, pay and show the online receipt to the greeter on my way out. Super simple.
I really like the fact that Sam’s Club recognizes that taking care of a loved one takes a lot of time and if I run out of time or have an emergency, I have options to get all the things that we need. While I look forward to the day when we won’t need to supplement our teen’s diet, we’re still not there so Ensure is still a part of our daily routine. Glad I have lots of options to purchase!
