Delivering packages to the elderly

Will packages be delivered to the elderly?
Will packages be delivered to the elderly?

Every once in a while, Grandma receives notices from the post office saying that she needs to pick up a delivery. The thing that she was in the house all day. How long does it take to ring the bell and deliver a package?  They should at least see if the person is home first before leaving  that slip.

When she get those slips, I have to come from over 30 miles away just to pick up her packages. When will the post office be more accomodating to the elderly? The post office may see this as saving time, but its a real inconvience to the elderly and their families.

Every so often, the post office sends out surveys and everytime we stress our views, but as far as Gram can see, she can’t see it making any difference.
