Meals On Wheels
The Area Agency on Aging provides a nutritious, well balanced, hot meal for delivery to residents of Dauphin County who are assessed by the Agency's Care Management Unit as being frail and/or homebound because of physical, mental, or emotional disability and without a caregiver who is able to provide meals on a regular basis. Meals are delivered five days a week by volunteers who observe, in the brief contact, the well being of the homebound individual receiving the meals. The volunteers are recruited by community "Meals-on-Wheels" organizations. Recipients of meals are encouraged to make a voluntary contribution toward the cost of the meals according to their financial ability.
