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 may want to help, but not know how. Sometimes, there just isn’t anyone around to help. In either case, people can turn -- and have turned for many years -- to our Meals on Wheels program. Our Meals on Wheels program helps seniors to:
- Remain independent members of society
- Maintain their health
- Live their lives with dignity
In short, Meals on Wheels provides help, autonomy and security for Carson City seniors, their families, and caregivers.
Good nutrition is a major factor in keeping seniors healthy and independent. The Meals on Wheels program has been a part of Carson City Senior Center's services for many years.
Meals on Wheels is available on both a short-term (for people recovering from surgery and other temporary problems) and continuing basis (for those with chronic, disabling and medical conditions). Our immediate response service ensures that meals can begin the next weekday after we are contacted. No one is ever put on a waiting list.
Please call the Carson City Senior Center at (775)883-0703 for more information regarding qualifications for Meals on Wheels.
