As we approach our golden years, many of us develop a vision of what we would like our lives to look like after retirement, where we will live, and how we will spend our time. That vision often includes a desire to stay in our homes, filling our free time with hobbies and social lives. It seldom includes spending time on chores like cooking. Which is why Chefs For Seniors was conceived. Father and son team Barrett and Nathan Allman started Chefs For Seniors in 2013 in Madison, Wisconsin. The Allmans were inspired by the needs of an older family member who couldn’t cook meals for themself and had to enter assisted living. The meal prep service has been featured by NPR, The Boston Globe, Fast Company, and more. Since that time the company has expanded into a nationwide network of local chefs and small business owners working to meet the needs of seniors who wish to age at home. Here on the Northern Front Range, Chef Evey Post owns and operates the Chefs For Seniors franchise, which serves Windsor, Fort Collins, Loveland, Greeley, and Timnath. Ms. Post has worked in many area restaurants, including Windsor’s own Chimney Park, and Door 222 in Loveland.  “Chefs For Seniors differs from other meal prep services because we work with our clients on an individual basis. We don’t mass produce meals in a commissary kitchen. We come to our clients and cook in their homes. That lets us really customize what we do. We can work with special dietary needs, which is often a factor as people age and deal with health issues.” says Ms. Post.  “One of the things we like to say is “we don’t deliver meals; we deliver a chef!” The service starts with the chef doing a grocery shop for fresh items, then coming to the home and spending about three hours there. Clients typically use the service anywhere from once a week, to once a month. Most of the meals prepared can be frozen until ready to be enjoyed.  Prices start at $165 plus the cost of groceries for a standard service, which provides 12 to 14 chef-made, wholesome, prepared-from-scratch meals.
When asked her favorite part of the job, Chef Evey responded, “I absolutely love what I do! For myself and my chefs, spending time getting to know our clients, building relationships, and caring for them by providing a needed service is incredibly gratifying.”
