We serve people of all ages and all incomes
No matter why a person is homebound: poor health, accident, a recent hospital stay or disability, they often face the major difficulties of poor nutrition and isolation Meals On Wheels West helps reduce both by bringing Food & Friendship to homebound people. Every weekday our caring volunteers deliver a healthy nutritious lunch, a light dinner, a daily newspaper, fresh produce and information about community programs to our clients.
Our meals are nutritionally balanced and low sodium
Our clients receive meals certified by a Los Angeles County registered dietitian. Meals On Wheels West meals can be prepared specifically for diabetic, kidney/renal patients, low potassium diets and additional special diet needs.
Following hospitalization or illness, proper nutrition, special diets and consistent healthy eating plays a critical role in healthy healing, wellbeing and independence.
Senior meals: Our regular home delivered hot, well balanced lunch is certified by Los Angeles County as low sodium. Limiting sodium in your diet helps prevent high blood pressure and enhances overall health.
Diabetic meals: A hot, well balanced lunch specifically created for diabetics helps maintain healthy weight and normal blood sugar levels.
Kidney/renal meals: Our nutritious renal meals limit the amount of phosphorus, potassium and sodium and may enhance kidney function.
Please consult your physician about your dietary needs. Nutrition needs vary from person to person depending on age, body size, activity, family history, and health conditions. Additionally Meals On Wheels West contacts our client’s primary physician prior to beginning meal delivery.
