Meals On Wheels Delaware
They’re called the “Golden Years,” but for some people, these years are tarnished by illness, loneliness, diminished capacity, and a loss of independence. Family and friends want to help but may not know how. Sometimes, there just isn’t anyone around to help. In either case, people have turned to the Meals On Wheels programs throughout Delaware for more than 30 years, and you can too.
Meals On Wheels helps seniors to:
- Remain independent
- Maintain good health
- Manage their own affairs
- Find needed assistance or care
- Live life with dignity
