Director's Monthly Message


     The reason for our existence is to serve the seniors in our community. To do this, you can be of great help.  We need your ears and eyes to assist us in recognizing those seniors in need of Meals on Wheels.  Who is it for?  Seniors who can no longer drive to access a grocery store and suffer physical ailments that prevent them from cooking.

 

     Do you or someone you know meet the following requirements?  

* Any person aged 60 or over that does not drive, is frail, homebound by reason of illness or incapacitating disability.  This can be a temporary condition after surgery or a broken bone, or can be long term.   

* A spouse of a person above regardless of age or condition may receive a meal if it is in the best interest of the homebound older person.

Eligibility for a home delivered meal is based on need, not income.

 

     Meals on Wheels is a safety net program for seniors.  It provides hot and healthy food to seniors five days a week (plus meals on Fridays for the weekend).  This program assists seniors to remain in their homes.

 

     Another huge plus is that Meals on Wheels staff and volunteers are trained to do a daily “safety check”, just to make sure there has been no evidence of falls, abuse or sickness.  This can really help to relieve some of the daily stresses of being home alone.  

 

    If you are aware of anyone meeting the above requirements, please let Tessie or me know at 987-3113.

There's a New Doctor of Optometry! 


     Dr. Wayne Ogata, St. Helena Family Health Center, Clearlake, spoke to the seniors gathered for lunch here at the Center on July 13.  He presented a comprehensive talk on cataract surgery—no more needles and no more slicing and dicing.  

 

     In addition to cataract surgery, he also offers comprehensive eye exams; prescriptions for glasses & contact lenses; surgical consultations for LASIK and glaucoma; hypertension screenings and pediatric eye care.
