Meals on Wheels is the delivery of ready-to-eat meals to your home around the lunch hours. Meals are provided Monday thru Friday with provisions for evening and weeks for qualified individuals. If you or a loved one is dealing with a disability, chronic disease, or recuperating from surgery or illness; then the delivery of a hot tasty meal and a friendly smile could be of help. During meal delivery, we provide what is best described as a daily safety check, where a trained staff member, who is familiar with the participant and their living environment makes note of changes that can be a sign of issues arising. Safety checks are an important tool in being proactive in preventing major issues from developing.
Eligibility varies by program. The basic criteria is listed below, but please contact us for more specific details:
