Meals on Wheels

 

Good nutrition – enough food and health sustaining food is important for everyone, and critically important for senior citizens.   Circumstances such as a medical condition, limited mobility, or the limited ability to cook can make "maintaining a well-balance, nutritious diet" a challenge. For those seniors, Meals-on-Wheels are the answer. In fact, 99% of our clients who receive them have told us the home-delivered meals have made it possible for them to stay in their homes.

Cincinnati Area Senior Services (CASS) is the largest provider of Meals-on-Wheels in Greater Cincinnati. They offer several plans, to meet the particular needs of seniors.

  • Savory Selects offer a choice of 31 entree options. Each meal includes choices of fruits and juices, snacks and desserts. These meals are delivered frozen once a week and also include a half loaf of bread and a half gallon of milk.
  • Traditional Meals-On-Wheels offers a choice of an entree and are delivered daily. These are ideal for seniors who can benefit from a daily check on their well-being.
  • Special meals for diabetics and those who require renal, chopped, ground, or pureed meals are also available for daily delivery.

In Hamilton County, the Council on Aging oversees the Meals-on-Wheels program, determining which seniors qualify for home-delivered meals. For seniors who do not meet the criteria, but would like to receive these meals, there is a private pay option.
