Most of the elderly find themselves at some point unable to meet their basic needs for health and wellness due to physical decline. As the senior adult population continues to grow exponentially around the country, including in Montgomery County, services to support this vulnerable cohort are critical.
The mission of Meals on Wheels Montgomery County is to provide home delivered meals and transportation services to the homebound elderly in Montgomery County.
As an organization, we seek to provide strategically placed services to support elderly preventative health initiatives, benefiting the individual, their family, and the county at large. Our Meals on Wheels program provides both consistent nutrition services and a safety check by a friendly volunteer.
We partner with our County Commissioners to provide daily group dining opportunities at the Commissioner’s local centers, so that qualifying seniors can have a hot nutritious meal in a social environment, transportation included. These services ensure the seniors we serve the independence they seek to age in place.
Our Senior Rides program offers transportation services to seniors and disabled community members. Our passenger buses have curbside services that transport our clients to the places they need to be, including doctor’s offices, grocery stores, and activity centers. .
At Meals on Wheels Montgomery County, we believe that well-nourished and valued seniors are a big part of a well-nourished valuable community. It’s what we’re all about.
Please join us in addressing what has become a critical community health issue of our time: Caring for the aging in our community.
It’s simple. Nourished Senior. Nourished Community.
