Meals On Wheels

All of the home delivered meals for the Meals-On-Wheels Program are prepared at our Alton site and approved by a licensed dietary nutritionist. All meals are delivered Monday through Friday, between 10:30 a.m. and 12:30 p.m. We do not deliver on holidays, but we will deliver a frozen meal the day before so you still get a meal for the day.

If you need meals on the weekend, two frozen meals can be delivered on Fridays.

Home-bound seniors age 60 or older may qualify to receive our Meals-On-Wheels service. To see if you qualify, the Southwestern Illinois Visiting Nurses Association (VNA) must perform an in-home assessment. This appointment can be made through Senior Services Plus, Inc. by calling (618) 465-3298

 

Spouses of home-bound seniors, regardless of age, may also qualify if approved by the VNA.

People under the age of 60 and disabled who would like to participate in the Meals-On-Wheels program may be eligible based on a Department of Human Services assessment.

Anyone who is willing to pay full price for a meal ($5.00) may also use our Meals-On-Wheels Program without an assessment from the VNA.

Temporary delivery of home-delivered meals is also available for those recovering from a physical setback such as surgery, illness, injury, etc.

Regular participation in our Congregate Meal Program automatically qualifies you for ten home-delivered meals throughout the year without the need for a VNA assessment.

Donations are greatly appreciated and help to offset the cost of food, containers and delivery. The suggested donation for the Senior Services Plus, Inc. Meals-on-Wheels Program is $3.50 per meal. Neither your ability to donate, nor the amount of your donation will affect your eligibility to receive a meal.

For more information on the Senior Services Plus, Inc Meals-On-Wheels Program, or to register, please contact the Program Coordinator at (618) 465-3298
