Home-delivered meals are available from PCA for eligible homebound seniors. Meals arrive hot or frozen depending on the consumer’s needs. All meals meet one-third of the Dietary Reference Intakes of older adults and comply with the Dietary Guidelines for Americans.
Other services are available for those who don’t qualify for meals through PCA. Individual agencies should be contacted for eligibility requirements.
Consumers who wish to receive home-delivered meals through PCA undergo an assessment to determine their eligibility. Some of the eligibility requirements include: the inability to cook, food shop, or attend congregate meal programs; living alone and not having someone available who can help prepare meals, or lacking the financial resources to meet their nutritional needs.
