Following hospitalization or illness, proper nutrition, special diets and consistent healthy eating plays a critical role in healthy healing, wellbeing and independence. Meals on Wheels West offers short and long term meal delivery programs.
No matter why a person is homebound, a recent hospital stay, poor health, accident or disability, they often face the major difficulties of poor nutrition, limited mobility and isolation. Meals On Wheels West is a part of the solution by delivering medically appropriate meals and a daily Wellness Check to all clients.
Every weekday dedicated Meals on Wheels West volunteers deliver a healthy nutritious lunch, a light dinner, a daily newspaper, fresh produce and information about community programs to our clients.
All meals are nutritionally balanced and low sodium
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.
Diabetic meals: A hot, well balanced lunch specifically created for diabetics helps maintain healthy weight and normal blood sugar levels.
Kidney/renal meals: Nutritious renal meals limit the amount of phosphorus, potassium and sodium and may enhance kidney function.
Daily meals: The standard 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.
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. Meals On Wheels West contacts client’s primary physician prior to beginning meal delivery to inquire about special meal needs and overall health
Our meals are low cost and you may qualify for a subsidy
