We don’t blame you if you’re feeling a little exhausted and rundown. This time of year, it seems like everyone is succumbing to colds and stress and general exhaustion. It’s painful when someone you care about isn’t feeling well — even more painful when that loved one is far away and you can’t be there to deliver a care package of herbal tea and tissues.

We’ve seen how people have used TaskRabbit to care for people even when they’re hundreds of miles apart.

So if you know someone who’s feeling under the weather and you can’t be there to help, here are some ways TaskRabbit can overcome some of those physical limitations:

  • Hire a Tasker to help clean your ill friend’s apartment. When you’re sick, the last thing you want to do is vacuum the carpet or tidy up the kitchen. A Tasker can help keep your home or someone else’s home in order.
  • Schedule a Tasker to assemble and deliver a care package. Chicken soup, throat lozenges, aspirin — a Tasker can make a run to the drug store, pick up everything a sick person would want, and then deliver it to their front door.
  • Make a delicious meal with a Tasker’s help. Getting around to actually cooking something nourishing can be challenging when you’re not feeling well. Fortunately, there are plenty of skilled Taskers available who can come over and make a meal.

We don’t yet have the technology to teleport you across the country, but we can drop off some groceries in your name, which is good enough in our book.
