Auburn, Calif.- In response to client demand, Seniors First will soon expand a program established to provide homebound seniors with hot meals and daily social interaction.
My Meals, the most recent addition to the extensive list of senior-focused services offered by Seniors First, is a subscription-based meal program targeted to homebound seniors and those recuperating from recent illness, hospitalization or convalescence.
With tremendous success during the initial pilot program in the city of Lincoln and the extra support of additional funding, the program will now be able to serve the residents of Roseville, Rocklin, and Auburn.
Grants and contributions offset the cost of the meals and delivery and partially subsidize service for low-income subscribers in the communities of Lincoln and Auburns. Meals are delivered hot, Monday thru Friday (except for holidays) by trained volunteers. Anyone of any age may purchase meals; however, the program specifically targets homebound seniors who are 60 years of age and older.
“We are thrilled to be able to offer this level of service to our clients. We know there is tremendous need and we are now able to better serve homebound seniors in the community and individuals who are temporarily confined,” Seniors First Executive Director Jamee Horning added.
Seniors First is always in need of friendly, dedicated volunteers and financial support to underwrite programs and services for Placer County’s elderly and their families.
