Meals on Wheels Program
One of the most helpful programs while caring for a loved one with Alzheimer's was the Meals on Wheels program. The volunteers who delivered the meals were always friendly and encouraging. They took a special interest in the patient and even included some little extras on birthdays or other special times of the year. Our senior was on a much different schedule than the rest of the families, so it was pretty rare that they ate with the rest of the family. However, it was always a comfort to know that a special meal was already prepared, sitting in the refrigerator for when it was needed. For more information on the Meals on Wheels program visit their website: http://www.mowaa.org. If you are caring for a loved one or you are a senior yourself and its not as easy to cook and prepare meals as it used to be, then definitely check into this program. From their website you can locate a local group in your area that can help you.
