Home-bound frail seniors who still live in their own home may benefit from a home-delivered daily meal. Our volunteer Meals on Wheels drivers will bring you a nutritious meal along with some lively conversation. We’ll check in with you each day, make sure you’re doing well, and bring you food you need to continue to live a healthy life. Our drivers may also offer you Community Action’s Wellness on Wheels program giving you regular visits from a registered nurse to help you stay healthy. At this time only Meals on Wheels participants are eligible for Wellness on Wheels.
Our Home-Delivered Meal Program serves meals for seniors age 60 and over and are home-bound and/or unable to shop and cook are eligible to receive Meals on Wheels. You may also receive Meals on Wheels if you are the caregiver/spouse/companion of a 60+ senior who is receiving meals. Volunteer Delivery Drivers deliver our freshly prepared meals on Monday, Wednesday and Friday. A key component of our Home-Delivered Program is consistent contact with our senior clients. This contact not only reduces senior isolation, but ensures their safety on a daily basis. Here are the key components of the Home-Delivery Program.
- Deliveries are made between 10:00 am – 1:00 pm on Monday, Wednesday and Friday. Clients must be home to receive the meals.
- Meals will be delivered in advance of seasonal holidays.
- Constant contact – saves lives and allows seniors to remain independent in their own homes.
- Seniors receive a monthly menu and information on other social service programs.
- We provide nutritional and preventive health information.
- Clients will receive 3 meals on Monday & Wednesday and 2 meals on Friday.
- Our suggested contribution is $4.50 per meal to help support the program. No senior will ever be denied a meal based on their inability to contribute.
