Meals for Home-Bound Seniors
Home-bound seniors (age 60 and over) may be eligible to receive healthy lunches delivered to their door. During the COVID-19 pandemic, special precautions are in place to ensure the health and safety of both program participants and CRT staff and volunteers.
Seniors that want to sign up for Meals on Wheels must live in CRT’s communities within Tolland or Hartford counties. Volunteers and staff deliver the meals directly to homes. After referrals are placed, hot lunches will be delivered between 10:00 am – 1:00 pm. Special diets and textures are available, as well as the option of cold dinners and double meals, as needed.
A $3.00 donation per meal is suggested to help cover costs. However, no one is denied a meal if unable to donate.
CRT’s Elderly Nutrition Program is supported by the North Central Area Agency on Aging with Title IIIC funds made available under the Older Americans Act.
To Apply, participants must
- Be 60 years of age or older
- Be unable to eat at a community meal site
- Be assessed by staff as medically homebound
Referrals are accepted from doctors, hospitals, VNAs, and town social service departments. An interview and/or home visit is required to assess need.
Once approved, we will begin meal delivery within two days of receiving the application.
To start the process, contact a Program Manager at (860) 560-5848.
