Meals on Wheels Program: Eastern Counties

Carefor employee preparing meals
Delicious meals delivered right to your doorsteps!

 

Meals on Wheels is a lunchtime meal delivered right to your home.  Meals on Wheels is so much more than just a meal. It is nutrition. It is a visit. It is a safety check-in.

The meal is well-balanced, and consists of soup or salad, entree and a dessert.

Meals are available 7 days per week, and is either a hot meal ready for immediate consumption or a frozen meal that you can heat and eat at your leisure.

Special diets are accommodated whenever possible. (Diabetic, low salt, minced, vegetarian)

Volunteers pick up the meals at our kitchens and deliver them to your home. Volunteers will spend a few minutes visiting with the client before moving on to their next delivery, providing some social contact and a quick check-in to ensure the client is doing well. The volunteer will alert the office if they have any concerns about your wellbeing.

Anyone can request the Meals on Wheels service and the staff will determine if they are eligible. Older adults and adults with disabilities are the usual recipients of service. However, we will provide meals on a short term basis for an adult with a temporary injury or recovering from an illness/ procedure.

Meals on Wheels is delivered throughout the area. 

There is a cost associated with this program. Please contact us for current pricing.
