> Nutrition Program
The Elder Services Nutrition Program includes Meals on Wheels, congregate dining, nutrition counseling and education (dietitian) services. Our services address common nutrition challenges faced by seniors. As the U.S. population ages, malnourishment is a growing concern. Proper nutrition is very important for all older adults. Providing access to nourishing meals and dietitian services helps to attain and maintain optimal nutritional status.
Meals on Wheels and Congregate Dining
The Meals on Wheels Program is a meal program offering a well-balanced meal to adults through home delivered services or congregate dining sites. It is a federally funded Nutrition Program that encompasses both the familiar Meals on Wheels Program and Congregate Dining Sites. Meals on Wheels volunteers deliver nutritionally balanced meals to home bound elders and adults with disabilities while Congregate Dining Sites provide the opportunity for those elders who are able to leave their homes without assistance to come out to eat and socialize. The Nutrition Program is available in our 28 cities and towns service area.
Nutrition Counseling and Education (Dietitian) Services
Eating right extends life and knowing what’s “right” is the key. Elder Services has a team of Registered Dietitians available to help you learn how to eat healthy to be healthy through Individualized In-Home Nutrition Counseling, Medical Nutrition Therapy and Nutrition Presentations.
