Glin Homes for the Elderly has launched a Meals-on-Wheels service for the elderly in the locality. If older people are living on their own they often need some assistance in maintaining their independence, staying safe, eating well and leading an active lifestyle. Our Meals-on-Wheels service will help to ensure that participants, in addition to receiving healthy and balanced meals, will also have the added benefits of regular visits by one of our delivery team to ensure that they are safe and well.
Meals,costing 5 euros, include a main course and dessert and are delivered on a daily basis to homes in the town and surrounding district. Meals can also be collected from Glin Day Care Centre by family members or carers. Many people are availing of the service already and we are hoping to finalize our list of participants for the winter months as soon as possible.
Those who because of age,disability or illness are unable to prepare adequate meals for themselves will qualify for the service. If you wish to avail of this service or, as a concerned neighbour or family member, you know of an older person who might be interested in our Meals-on-Wheels service please contact Mary on 0874124808 or Una on 068-26033 for further details.
