We are currently delivering to 230 - 260 participants each Monday - Friday.
Fall begins with tailgate picnics and cookouts with toasted marshmallows. Thanksgiving leans into the December Holidays when we remember dishes like turkey, sweet potato casserole, cornbread dressing, and pecan pie. Do you relate holidays to the traditional foods served at your table?
Homebound seniors have food memories too! You can help homebound seniors celebrate every day with nutritious foods and special days with holiday menus.
Some of our homebound participants are recovering from illness or surgery. Other clients are long-term due to mobility issues, dementia, or diagnoses such as diabetes, high blood pressure, or congestive heart failure.
Eloise has diabetes, and her closest relative lives out of state. She uses a walker and has difficulty finding transportation to the doctor. On a Monday two years ago, a volunteer could not get her to the door. Meals on Wheels contacted local law enforcement for a welfare check. They found Eloise on the floor, where she had been for three days. The hospital medical team diagnosed Eloise with severe dehydration and significant infection. After a hospital stay and a couple of weeks in a rehab facility, she returned home to greet her Meals on Wheels volunteers again every day.
Without Meals on Wheels, Eloise would be without nutritious meals. And just as importantly, she would be without a friendly volunteer checking on her every Monday-Friday.
Would you please help our seniors like Eloise get the nutritious food and the support they need to remain in their homes and enjoy their favorite fall and holiday meals?
