In my state, at least, you have to be 'home-bound'.
How that's defined varies.

It's a very good program, though.

Isn't that what we'll call people in wheelchairs once the zombie apocalypse happens?

This is a sick bit of shxt! At some point you will/may have to figure out out to get out a chair ... not that one, you can't. Trust me, it can take some thought on how to accomplish what should be (other wise) 'simple tasks.'

Heath care lady beating the hell out of me yesterday for not using my 'walker' inside the house. 'Yes Mam.... ' beady eyes: 'You are lieing to me.' One does not lie to 'Mz Susan.'

Dog-Dog loves her; flacked out on her shoes.

Trust me, you can be at a place where you need to 're-learn' how to walk 'unassisted.' Walker in the house, cane if I need to go out. Getting in/out of the Jeep takes some thought.

It's an outstanding program that sure could use more funding.

Here you pay, if you can. Meals are other wise just delivered. There is no 'income test.' Old couple delivers my meals, brings them in; Mz. Dog-Dog loves them; he has a pocket full of 'treats.'

Same with the 'Eldery care.' spelling sucks today. Three times a week a RN is checking up on me; thing in my bathroom that I have to strap myself into at least once a day for readings (results out via cell phone). Don't/wrong reading(s) and I'll get a phone call at the least.

Lots of us 'old farts' here in the Valley, the Heath Care providers really do pay attention. Signed up for the 'service' years back, no health issues at that point, now I'm collecting every penny back.

Amazing what a 'fall' can do to you; you are FUXKED if you don't have a cell phone in your pocket.

OLD PEOPLE! If you don't have a cell phone GET ONE! Speed dial 'one' is "911." Nice, strong men, will scoop you off the floor. Just trust me on this one!

Both of these programs are awesome for a lot of people.Especially the older group of people with health problems and living on a fixed income.Rent and bills takes most of their income and some are left with very little for food.These health care workers do great work also.I have seen some that go above and beyond and do a lot that their job may not require them to do.They really make a difference in the peoples lives they help and do not get recognized enough for it.I agree they could use more funding.These programs for a lot of people are the difference in being able to live at home or having to live in a nursing home.

Default Re: 'Meals on Wheels'

My son is a member of Sullivan ARC, along with my son a group of other mentally handicapped adults are driven around the county distributing Meals on Wheels to the home bound.
This helps two peoples at once, my son and his group are part of a program that gets them outside into the community helping others, and the elderly not only get their much needed food but also get to talk into the ear of more than willing participants....win win.
Not all government subsidized programs are wasteful, in my opinion this is one of the real good ones.

My Mom is 84 and she looks forward each day to the Meal on Wheels coming by to say hi and delivering a wonderful meal...of all the services, she values this one more than any other. I appreciate that organization very much and donate to them accordingly...

Outstanding!

Helped prepare these meals for several years, never thought I'd be looking out my window for the delivery. Helped 'old people' eat, with a spoon. I had time, lots of time.

Talked of 'shoes, ship's, ceiling wax, and cabages are kings.
The heart breaker was 'My kids don't call me any more.' What the hell do you say?

"I'm here, talk to me." Tears running down my face. I was safe becuse they stood before me and those that would do me harm.

Now I'm the one asked the question.
