-Any person 60 or older who is essentially homebound by reason of illness, disability, or isolation, if an assessment concludes that participation is in the individual's best interest.
-A spouse or domestic partner of a person eligible for a HDM as described above, regardless of age or condition, if an assessment concludes that participation is in the best interest of the homebound older individual.
-An adult with a disability who resides with an eligible older individual participating in the program, if an assessment concludes that participation is in the best interest of the eligible participant.
-The individual is unable to leave his or her home under normal circumstances.
-The person is unable to participate in the congregate meals program because of physical or emotional problems.
-The individual is unable, either physically or emotionally, to obtain food and prepare adequate meals.
A home-delivered meal assessment is required in order to determine eligibility.
Home delivered meals are designed to provide one hot, nutritious meal each weekday if you are 60+ years old.
Meals can be ordered either on a temporary basis, such as if you are laid up due to recovery from an illness or surgery, or on a long term basis so that you can remain independent and in your own home.
Meals are available on a donation basis for eligible participants. A donation request is mailed to participants on a monthly basis. The suggested donation is $5.00 per meal. If you are eligible for meals but can't afford the suggested donation you will not be denied participation in the program.
Meal delivery is available throughout Ozaukee County.
Call 262-284-8120 to speak with the Nutrition Manager to discuss your situation to not only help you apply for home delivered meals but also other programs in the community that would be helpful to meet other needs you may have.
Meals are delivered Monday through Friday between 11:00 a.m. - 1:00 p.m. We are closed for inclement weather and major holidays.
General or Low Sugar Meals
A general diet is provided, designed to meet one-third of the recommended daily allowance (RDA) for persons age 60 and over. Special diets such as ground or pureed foods are not available. All meals are prepared with no added salt. Diabetic dessert alternatives are available upon request.
Nutrition Information & Risk Assessment
Every participant receives helpful information about good nutrition, recipes, safe food storage, food and drug interactions, and much more. Nutrition Risk Screening for the program includes a short assessment tool that helps you identify if you are at low, medium, or high nutritional risk. It's a great way to see how you can improve your eating or other habits to improve your quality of life.
Participants who will not be home during the delivery time are asked to call the Aging and Disability Resource Center at 262-284-8136 by noon two days in advance, or later if something comes up. If you are not home and do not call us to cancel, we will not leave the meal and initiate a welfare check to make sure you are alright.
Meals are delivered by volunteers. They are not allowed to leave the meal unless a person is home to accept it.
Call 262-284-8120 to speak with the Nutrition Manager to sign up yourself or a loved one.
