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.
Often, the volunteer who delivers the meal is the only outside contact the senior citizen may have all day.
A donation toward the cost of the meals is accepted but is not mandatory.
