In November we honor the work of informal caregivers, the unsung heroes who dedicate their love, time, and commitment to care for a family member or friend. For many, caregiving is a commitment 24 hours per day, seven days per week. Caregiving Around the Clock
We have time limited grant funding to help people with dementia and their caregivers.
The theme of our 43rd annual meeting on November 1 was "Food Is Medicine", and included a panel discussion on current healthcare trends which recognize the role of nutrition in promoting positive health outcomes. Honored for their support of the Meals on Wheels program were four foundations (Cummings Foundation, Foundation for MetroWest Hunger Relief Fund, Osterman Family Foundation and Meals on Wheels America) and two local meals providers (Bateman Community Living and Szechuan’s Dumpling).
Panelists pictured above: Alma Ballota, Meals on Wheels recipient; Jennifer Stiff, Nutrition Program Director; Heather Wilson, Registered Dietitian; and Denise Mercury, Registered Dietitian
