Nutrition / Meals on Wheels

Elder Care Services’ Nutrition Services Programs have been serving seniors since 1972 by providing a hot meal, which meets one-third of 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:

  • Meals on Wheels (hot and frozen meals available)
  • Home Dining (private pay)
  • Congregate Meal Sites

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

Meals on Wheels — Through the generosity of donors and volunteers, Elder Care Services has been operating the local Meals on Wheels program since 1972 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 the senior. 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.

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.
