Home-Delivered Meals- Meals on Wheels

Terrebonne Council on Aging - Friday, May 15, 2015

Did you know, in just Terrebonne Parish, more than 150,000 hot, well-balanced meals are delivered and served to clients in their homes in one year?

Did you know that the cost of delivering meals on wheels to a senior for an entire year is about the same as six (6) days in the nursing home, or just one (1) day in a hospital?

Did you know that every $1 invested into Meals on Wheels saves up to $50 in Medicare alone.

Did you know that a meal a day may be one of the best preventative measures available, not merely providing nutrition, but checking in on the status of our home bound seniors?
