About Me

Cheryl Powell

Local people know local needs.

I have lived In Turramurra, for over twenty years, and have seen growth in our community of elderly people being able to be more independent in their own home, I have also seen many new, young professional families move into our area.

While supporting my elderly neighbours with shopping plus working full time as a HR professional and at the same time volunteering with the Cerebral Palsy Association and a carer for the disabled with Southern Cross, I realised there was a need for a direct personal shopping service, that was efficient and at affordable prices.

Current options are to go through third party agencies where costs can range up to $58 per hour with lots of paperwork, or on-line shopping which is often baffling for the non-internet savvy shopper.

There is a fast growing need in Australia to support and enable our elderly and disabled, to live at home longer and maintain independence, as well as a need to assist time poor professionals who work longer hours to maintain their family lives.

Shopping4me is my way to help you, serviced directly by myself, offering a range of support and affordable assistance for everyday shopping needs. My services are tailored, to suit the needs of elderly people living at home or unable to drive, people with a disability, temporary ill health, recovering from an injury, as well as working professionals, freeing up your valuable time to be more active within your community or family.

Best of all, there are no third parties, forms or contracts to deal with and shopping4me offers a simple secure and easy streamlined service. You just choose the services you need then contact me by email or phone.

Questions ?

How soon is the order actioned after my phone call or email contact?

Depending on the time of day you make your request, I offer the same day service or within 24 hours from your notice, unless you would like it arranged later in the week.

Do I have to sign an ongoing agreement?

No, there are NO agreements to sign or minimum hours you have to spend, apart from the first hour of each service. The choice is yours, You can you use the services regularly or on a casual needs basis.

How can I trust that you provide a secure, reliable service?

Having worked as a Volunteer with the Cerebral Palsy Association and currently for Southern Cross, I have had the mandatory NSW National Police checks as well as a WWC, (Working with Children Check). I am also currently a Certified Professional with the Australian Human Resources Institute (CAHRI). I have supported my elderly neighbours for a number of years so that they have been able to stay in their homes longer.

Can I cancel an agreed service time?

YES, as long as it is with more than 24 hours notice. After this time you would incur the fee for one hour of service, unless this time can be booked with someone else.

Can I travel with you for the shopping?

Sorry, but this service is not insured to take care of you whilst you shop, so it is better for you to relax at home or do something more with your valuable time than line up in the queues at a grocery store.

Can you deliver the purchases to someone else?

YES, this can be covered within the service and time as long as it is within a reasonable distance.

What other shopping services would you might offer?

This could possibly be deliveries or collections from the local Post office, collecting documents and returning them to Doctors, Lawyers etc.
