Meals on Wheels
A person aged 60 or over and the spouse of the person regardless of age or condition are eligible to receive home-delivered meals if one or the other is homebound by reason of illness, incapacitating disability or is otherwise isolated. Hot, nutritious noon meals are delivered up to five days per week. Frozen meals may be delivered for the weekends.
In some cases, meals may be delivered to individuals under the age of 60 if they receive Medicaid and if home-delivered meals are a part of their care plan.
Advise on Toilet paper shortage
With some people likely short of toilet paper, avoid flushing alternatives including paper towels, napkins, and even wipes described on the package as “flushable.” Those products should be placed in the trash instead.
Products other than toilet paper are not designed to break down rapidly, even if they seem similar. Although these items can potentially clog a city’s sewer mainlines, by far the biggest risk is to the lateral lines that connect homes to the mainlines. That’s because the laterals are much smaller diameter pipes. And unlike the mainlines, which a city is responsible for unclogging, blockage on the laterals is the homeowner’s responsibility.
