No. While our services are marketed and catered to the nutritional needs of older adults, people of all ages can use Chefs For Seniors.

The price of our services are region-specific and depends on your individual needs. Our goal is to provide an affordable solution that seniors can use long-term. For example, in Madison, WI where the company was founded we have clients that’ve enjoyed chef-prepared meals every week for 6+ years.

We offer three different service packages to meet a variety of needs: Standard, Custom, and Non-Standard. Click HERE to set your location and request more information on pricing in your area.

The Standard Package: your chef prepares 10-12 individually packaged servings of meals during a 2-hour home visit, depending on the items ordered. Select from our weekly menu rotation, with the ability to modify the dishes to meet your dietary needs and food preferences. The price of the Standard Package typically ranges from $125-$225 for grocery shopping, menu planning, and meal preparation depending on your specific needs and the market you live in. The cost of groceries is separate. Contact your local franchise owner for specific pricing information in your area.

The Custom Package: the chef prepares 10-12 individually packaged servings of meals. Custom Package clients are able to have more control over their menu, and the chef can even utilize dietary information from your doctor or dietitian. There is usually an additional $10-$30 surcharge for the Custom Package depending on the scope of your dietary needs. The cost of groceries is separate.

Hourly Package: this covers basically everything else. If you need the chef to cook for 3+ people, prepare food for a dinner party, or want help with holiday meal prep that’s what the Non-Standard Package is intended for. The price for Non-Standard services depends on the nature of the job, and local franchises charge an hourly rate for the chef’s time, generally $50-$80/hour. The cost of groceries is separate.

Most Long Term Health Insurance Policies and a small percentage of Medicare Advantage Plans cover certain in-home services like Chefs For Seniors if the member qualifies. In most states, Medicaid does not provide coverage for our service.

During a 2-hour home visit, our personal chefs will prepare 4 different entrées and 10-12 individually-packaged servings of meals. The exact number of servings depends on the client’s appetite and the types of meals ordered, and serving sizes can be adjusted with our chefs.

Most clients have their personal chef visit their home every week, although some choose to schedule services every 2 weeks or 2x per week. We can work within their budget, appetite, and needs.

The primary benefits of our service are the level of customization offered by having their own personal chef prepare meals just for them and the unique experience during a service day. Our model allows us to accommodate a variety dietary concerns and unique food preferences that meal delivery services cannot address. When they experience a chef visit for themselves it’ll be something they look forward to every week!

We can accommodate most dietary concerns and diets. Our chefs and menus are particularly well-suited for low-sodium, diabetic friendly, gluten-free, Kosher, and renal diet meals. We also take inspiration from the DASH Diet (Dietary Approach To Stopping Hypertension), when designing our weekly menu rotations. Our Custom Package is well suited for clients with less common diets or dietary concerns.

Their personal chef will bring their own “toolbox” with pots, pans, knives, and utensils into the home. They don’t need to have anything on hand except an appetite and working appliances!
