Senior Nutrition Program
Better known as Meals on Wheels, Senior Resource Connection’s Nutrition Program delivers hot or frozen, nutritionally balanced meals on a daily basis to eligible elderly and disabled individuals in 11 Counties in the Miami Valley area.
More than a meal, our trained drivers provide a friendly and daily personal contact that improves our client’s and their family’s sense of well-being. It is definitely reassuring to know that someone will check on a loved one daily, when you are unable.
Who can get Meals-On-Wheels?
Generally, a person is 60 years and older and is unable to prepare their own meals on a regular basis, due to being physically or neurologically impaired and has no one available to prepare meals. The program also addresses the nutritional needs of individuals under 60 who are afflicted with some type of disability.
