How Papa Helps

Papa Pals offer a hand to help, a shoulder to lean on, and an ear to listen—when, where, and how you need it most.


Papa Pals love a good card game, stroll down memory lane, or a new recipe. If it’s good company you need, they’ve got it in spades.


Need a ride to a doctor’s appointment, help running errands, or picking up groceries? They’ll get you safely where you need to go.

Everyday Tasks

Keeping up with the house can be overwhelming. Papa Pals offer light cleaning and yard work, meal prep, organizing, pet help, and more.

Technology Assistance

Our Papa Pals are here to help you set up and learn how to use devices and applications to stay in touch with loved ones, enjoy games, and so much more.

Contactless Grocery Door Drop

Nutritious food comes right to your front door with Papa. We’ll shop for and deliver the groceries you order (costs not included).
