Nutrition / Meals on Wheels

Elder Care Services’ Nutrition Services Programs have been serving seniors since 1971 by providing a hot meal, which meets one-third of the recommended daily nutritional requirements.

For frail, home-bound seniors, these meals are the lifeline that allows them to age comfortably in their homes, and avoid the costly alternative of early nursing home placement.

Nutrition Services include:

  • Home Dining
  • Meals on Wheels
  • Frozen Meals
  • Congregate Meal Sites
  • Transportation to Congregate Meal Sites

*All services are during the weekday only. There is currently no weekend service.

Home Dining - Elder Care Services can provide a hot, nutritious meal, along with a safety check to home-bound seniors each weekday.  Home Dining is a convenient and affordable solution for seniors and caregivers. Signing up is easy! Simply download and complete our Home Dining Contract and get started with a $75.00 (plus $2.00 processing fee) deposit. For your convenience, you can sign up right away and make online payments by clicking on the PayPal icon below.

Meals on Wheels— Through the generosity of donors and volunteers, Elder Care Services has been operating the local  Meals on Wheels program for over 46 years in our community! This volunteer-driven lunch delivery program serves home-bound, food insecure seniors in our community Monday through Friday at no cost to our seniors. For home-bound seniors living outside of the daily delivery route, frozen meals are available as a convenient, alternative option to meet your nutritional needs. Contact us to find out if you or your loved one qualifies for Meals on Wheels.

Congregate Meal Sites — Seniors gather at one of our eight Congregate Meal Site locations to enjoy a nutritious lunch and socialization. They receive information on healthy eating and participate in health screening activities. Our Congregate Meal Sites include:
