MEALS ON WHEELS

For millions of Americans, Meals on Wheels is literally 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.

 

Bay Ridge Center is proud to offer Meals on Wheels services to our community. Please contact Catholic Charities directly at 718-680-3530 in order to initiate Meals on Wheels service.
