The Senior Hub Meals on Wheels program provides a hot, nutritious meal to people who are unable to prepare one for themselves.
Meals On Wheels is available as a subsidized meal option or Delicious Deliveries. With our two program options, we serve not just the elderly, but people who are recuperating from a hospital stay & active seniors who are looking for convenience.
The subsidized meal option is available to individuals age 60+ and is intended to provide a healthy meal for those unable to cook or leave their home. Meals are delivered by a volunteer.
Delicious Deliveries is the only meal delivery service unique to the Adams County area. We provide hot, nutritious lunchtime meals to our community members who sign up. The Senior Hub staff is partnered with local restaurants who to prepare the food: Great Scotts & IHOP.
Meals on Wheels is so much more than just a meal. In many cases, our Meals on Wheels volunteer delivery drivers are the only visitors many of our clients receive. Drivers provide a wellness check during each visit. If a driver does not have a client answer a door, emergency contacts are called to check on the health and welfare of that client. In many cases, the driver’s quick response to a situation can be a major factor in saving the life of a senior.
The Senior Hub’s Meals on Wheels clients also receive special attention on holidays with special gifts, and goody bags filled with useful items like Kleenex, sugar-free goodies, “word search” books etc.
On Thanksgiving, members of two community churches deliver home-cooked meals to clients who will be alone and have no family or friends with whom to share the holiday. During the Christmas holiday, the Meals on Wheels program facilitates an “Adopt A Senior” program. Clients with no family or friends nearby can apply for the program. On Christmas Day volunteers prepare and deliver home-cooked meals and deliver stockings and gifts to the registered seniors.
