Help for Seniors

LIFE ElderCare’s mission is to empower the aging to live with independence AND interdependence by nourishing mind, body and spirit. They offer free, simple and important services for older adults who prefer to remain living at home.

Their Meals On Wheels program provides home-delivered nutritious mid-day meals for those who have a hard time preparing their own.

If you are a healthy young adult with low-risk factors for getting COVID-19, sign up today to be paired with an elder in our community who could use your help over the next several weeks. Learn more at

Here is a very useful list of all sites that are distributing meals for seniors!
