Meals on Wheels West is a wonderful organization and the people that work there, and volunteers are amazing. I have some neighbors who have received meals from them (along with the daily newspaper) AND it has helped them stay healthy and living in their own homes.

For over 17 years, I have been a caregiver for my mother & aunt. From time to time, my mother's critical health concerns required lengthy hospital stays & discharge to convalescent facilities/nursing homes. During her stays at these facilities, her realization of her loss of independence, lack of mobility & being bed-bound was heightened and absolutely demoralized her. Hope & motivation was disappearing for her and the plight of spending her days in a nursing home was overwhelming her, her sister and myself. With my family's consent, I applied for home-delivered meals. Meals on Wheels West was a great solution in allowing my mother to remain in the comfort of her own bed and home. The home-delivery of meals and a visit from the volunteers complemented my efforts as a caregiver. With her passing a few years ago, I now live with and care for my homebound aunt of 84 years of age. Her illness has mandated much of her time bed bound as well. Presently, I am able to manage my work, personal time and the care I must provide to make my aunt's life enjoyable. From time to time, I have been able to volunteer for Meals on Wheels West and my experience of delivering meals to the seniors and disabled, of all ages, has been a rewarding experience. As I leave their homes with a smile, I am amazed that I always feel that I just received something from them. My world becomes a little brighter when they greet me with joy and appreciation for their daily meal & my visit which maybe the only personal contact that they may have all day. I sometimes believe my time volunteering with the meal delivery is actually therapeutic for me. As a caregiver, I have explored many options for support and ways to understand my caregiving role in life. I truly understand the emotional needs of the aging and disabled persons. The need for self-esteem and a sense of independence is so important to every person. I get it as I have been a part of that life experience for so long. Meals on Wheels West is the absolute 'safety net' for the homebound person to remain healthy, vibrant and allow some independence to remain in their own homes surrounded by memories and security. The alternative are the institutions and facilities that I have come to abhor.

The Great!

The home-delivered meals of Meals on Wheels West lessened my caregiving obligations. During the day while at work, I knew that my mother & aunt were eating and getting a visit by a friendly person. My experience of delivering meals was a revelation that EVERYONE HAS A STORY, no matter the age or whatever.

My experience receiving the meals and delivering the meals from Meals on Wheels West leaves a great impression on me and I find no reason for change.
