Cornwall Meals on Wheels Program
What We Do
We provide hot, nutritious meals to people in the community who are unable to attend to their own meal preparation but wish to continue living independently.
Meals on Wheels assists in the promotion of health, well being and independence of its clients by providing a nutrition program with therapeutic, preventative and social components.
Why We Do It
Requests for Meals on Wheels Service are received from referral agencies, physicians, family members, friends and individuals themselves.
The Supervisor of Outreach Services arranges an assessment of need for service for each referral.
When necessary, a waiting list will be kept and periodic contact maintained with the client until service can be provided.
Volunteers are the backbone of our service and deliver all the meals. Volunteers also provide a social contact with the clients daily and will report to the Office Staff if clients are not home or ill.
A hot, nutritious meal is provided Monday through Friday including Statutory Holidays. There are no meals provided on Saturday or Sunday.
The Meals on Wheels Program receives funding from the following:
Cost is $22.50 per week. Cost of the program is based on a 5 day per week meal service. Exceptions to the weekly charge are made for Glen Stor Dun Lodge Day Away clients, clients admitted to hospital and clients on vacation.
