Frequently Asked Questions
+ What does the service cost?
The price of our services depends on the chefs’ rates in your area and your individual needs, but you’ll find that Chefs For Seniors is less expensive than most other personal and private chefs in your area. That’s because we want this service to be affordable for seniors long-term, and in Madison, Wisconsin where the company started there are clients who’ve used the service every week for 6+ years!
We offer three different service packages to meet a variety of needs: Standard, Custom, and Non-Standard.
The Standard Package: your chef would prepare 10-12 servings of meals during a 2-hour home visit, depending on the items ordered. You would choose from our weekly menu rotation, but are able to modify the dishes to meet your dietary needs and food preferences. The price of the Standard Package ranges from $95-$129 depending on the rate charged by your local chef(s).
The Custom Package: same as the Standard Package, the chef would prepare 10-12 servings of meals. The difference is that Custom Package clients are able to have more control over their menu, and the chef can even collect dietary information from your doctor or dietitian. There is an additional $10-$20 surcharge for the Custom Package.
Non-Standard 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 chefs charge between $50-$70/hour.
+ How many meals does the chef make?
During a 2-hour home visit, your personal chef will prepare 4 different entrée and 10-12 total servings of meals. The exact number of servings depending on your appetite and the types of meals ordered, and serving sizes can be adjusted with your chef.
+ How often does the chef come to my home?
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 your budget, appetite, and needs.
+ Do I have to be home while the chef is cooking?
Nope, although most clients enjoy watching and chatting with their chef! As long as your chef has an agreed upon way to get into your house, they can do the cooking while you aren’t home.
+ Can I just have the meals delivered?
Some of the primary benefits of our service are the level of customization offered by having your own chef prepare meals just for you and the unique experience during a service day. That’s how we’re able to accommodate so many dietary concerns and unique food preferences, and why we don’t offer home delivery. Trust us, when you experience a chef visit for yourself it’ll be something you look forward to every week!
+ What if I have a special diet or dietary concerns?
We can accommodate most dietary concerns and diets, and are particularly well-versed in 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.
+ Will they leave my kitchen a mess?
Our chefs take pride in cleaning the kitchen thoroughly once they’ve completed the cooking, leaving it just the way they found it and oftentimes even cleaner!
+ Do I have to supply the cooking equipment?
Your chef will bring their own “toolbox” with pots, pans, knives, and utensils into the home. Most chefs will even carry their own kits with herbs, spices, vinegars, and oils. You don’t need to have anything on hand except an appetite and working appliances!
