For many seniors, Meals on Wheels can be the difference between remaining in their own homes and needing to relocate to a nursing facility. The nutritious meal, friendly visit and safety check help them cope with three of the biggest threats of aging: hunger, isolation and loss of independence. Research proves that when seniors have the right support, they gain greater quality of life, need fewer hospital stays and live longer.Meals on Wheels serves individuals who are unable to prepare their own food because of physical limitations. A home visit is required to determine eligibility, and if found eligible, arrangements are made to have meals delivered to the individual’s home. In Berks County, Berks Encore aims to serve everyone in need of home-delivered meals. If you are interested in finding out more, call 610-374-3195 ext. 220"At the core of the Meals on Wheels service is a nutritious meal, companionship and a watchful eye on the health and safety of our seniors.Who do you know that could benefit from these services?
