About Meals on Wheels

API home delivered meals (Meals on Wheels) are available for individuals who are homebound by reasons of illness, incapacitation, disability, are in isolated communities, do not have anyone to prepare a balanced meal for them, and/or are not able, physically, socially, or emotionally, to attend a congregate meal site. Many times these home delivered meals assist the elderly in our communities to maintain their independence and avoid or delay institutionalization.

Our transporters are vital to these participants because they go into the home everyday to deliver the meal and are able to assess if the participant requires help of any kind. If there is no response to the knock and staff cannot get in the house, contact is made with the emergency contact person to assess what the problem might be. If the contact person is unavailable, the police are contacted. In many instances the transporter is the only person that senior may see that day. It is the seniors chance to visit and socialize with another individual face to face.
