Home Delivered Meals
Home Delivered Meals Program

Did you know....

It can be very confusing to describe eligibility when talking about the Home Delivered Meal program.  Sometimes it is assumed that the meals are “free” and that we will deliver to anyone over the age of 60.  Still adding to the confusion, we have those that believe that the meal can be left if no one is home.
The message that we need help sharing is that meals are offered on a donation basis.  Making a donation does not effect the delivery of the meal, but regular contributions assist us in continuing to provide the service to those that qualify.
To qualify for a home delivered meal, one must be over the age of 60, live in Lenawee County, and be home bound.  Homebound means that the client requires a special effort to get out of the house and can no longer prepare meals safely for themselves.  They may leave on occasion for special events, doctor visits, church, and the trip to the beauty shop.
If a client is unable to be home, they are responsible to alert the center staff or the office.  SOMETIMES there can be arrangements made to have the driver leave the meal, but this is the exception to the rule.  One of the main purposes of Home Delivered Meals is to check in with a client for social and safety awareness.
Every six months the client is visited by the Assessors.  It is their job to review eligibility and need of each client.  We are always pleased when a client improves and may be able to now prepare a meal or get out of the home safely.  It is then that the Assessor will assist the client in formulating a plan to transition to making meals or getting to their local senior center for a hot nutritious meal.
If you know of someone that may benefit from Home Delivered Meals, please have them call the office for more details.
