The Bones Royalty Card would enter the picture for Alice during Reestablishing Routines. It is a special perk that might be shared with Alice by her doctor, physical therapist, community worker or case worker – or even family member:
Alice is reflecting on some of the things that she needs to change about her routines and habits. She knows that she has to boost certain foods in her diet that will benefit her bone health, but she’s not sure where to start.
When her daughter gifts the card to her, it comes with a printed list of around 30 new food options to shop for (some familiar and some brand new) - as well as a small booklet of simple recipes.
Initially, Alice checks off 5 things on the list that sound appetizing including a few of her favorites – figs and rhubarb! That night, she makes an open-faced cheese sandwich, steamed broccoli, along with a simple dessert of stewed rhubarb. It's both easy and delicious. She feels like the changes may not be so bad.
A few weeks later, she receives a coupon to the store reflecting a reimbursement for all of the times she bought foods on the list. It adds up to about $16.83 - that she can apply to her total shopping bill, the next time she shops there.
