MORE THAN A MEAL
Building on MOW Diablo Region’s well-earned reputation for delivering meals, we began offering an array of additional services that meet the many needs seniors have that allow them to remain independent at home for as long as possible.
Our original flagship program nourishes frail, socially isolated homebound seniors by delivering a meal every day. This daily delivery also serves as a wellness check to ensure the isolated seniors we serve are safe.
This award-winning program reduces injuries from falls — the leading cause of institutional care — and helps seniors remain independent. By offering balance classes and conducting home safety assessments and modifications, we help seniors avoid falls and related injuries.
Our Case Managers provide confidential guidance to help older adults and their families navigate issues such as housing, elder abuse, depression, and long-term care needs.
The cafés offer more mobile seniors a hot, nutritious meal five days a week at their local senior center. The cafés also provide seniors an opportunity to socialize and take part in activities that keep them engaged and healthy.
The Breakfast Bag Program provides breakfast to very food-insecure seniors who often rely on the one meal we deliver as their only meal each day. The breakfast bags provide the added nutrition vulnerable seniors need to keep from going hungry and help keep they healthy at home.
