Meals on Wheels Diablo Region

• MEALS ON WHEELS: Much more than a meal.  We deliver meals and provide safety-checks for seniors (60 years or older) who are homebound, no longer driving, unable to prepare food themselves, and do not have a caregiver who prepares meals. Meals are provided based on need, not on income.  Our volunteer drivers deliver nearly 800 hot, nutritious meals to homebound seniors every weekday.

• C.C. CAFÉ: Nutritious meals are served and social activities are offered at 6 Contra Costa County locations.  Our cafés serve 220 healthy, free or low-cost lunches every weekday.

• FALL PREVENTION: Helps reduce preventable injuries, loss of independence, costs, and deaths associated with falls among seniors.  Our focus is a combination of education and exercise, using programs endorsed by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC).  Additionally, 180 seniors receive critical home safety improvements every year.

• FRIENDLY VISITORS: Matches isolated seniors with screened and trained volunteers from the community for weekly visits.  We provide companionship to 220 homebound seniors every week.

• CARE MANAGEMENT: Provides confidential guidance to help older adults and their families meet long-term care needs.  More than 800 seniors every year learn about and access services that improve their quality of life and maximize independence.

• HEALTH & WELLNESS:  Includes an array of services and resources designed to reduce stress, increase mobility, and improve quality of life. These workshops, alternative therapies, and educational sessions encourage older adults to live life to the fullest.
