MDSCAA SENIOR NUTRITION SERVICES DASHBOARD
This dashboard reflects the number of senior households served by MDS CAA and the number of meals delivered. Also reflected are the meal sites where nutritious meals can be found throughout Delta, Menominee, and Schoolcraft Counties.
Our Senior Services division manages three food programs, Congregate, Carry Out Meals (COM), and Home Delivered Meals (HDM) to residents 60 years of age and older throughout our three-county service area.
HDM are for homebound participates, who normally are unable to leave their home unassisted or prepare a nutritious meal. Eligible participants must be:
· Must be homebound
· Unable to prepare a nutritious meal
· Be able to complete an assessment within 14 days of starting
· Be able to complete a reassessment every 6 months
These assessments are completed in your home and over the phone. They are a tool used to determine eligibility and continued eligibility and if you are eligible for other services offered by MDS CAA as well as outside organizations. HDM are not only a great source of nutrition but also a wellness check to ensure you are safe. We also offer temporary services for seniors recently discharged from a health care facility.
Congregate and COM
Our congregate and COM program follows the same menu as HDM. Eligible participants must be 60 years of age and older and fill out a registration form annually. If you would like to participate in our congregate setting or COM program, please call your local Senior Center the day before to reserve a meal.
Cost of the Meal
The suggested donation is $4.00 per meal for Congregate, COM, and HDM. No one is ever denied service due to their inability to donate. Donations are greatly appreciated since federal and state funding does not cover the cost of operating the programs.
For more information about our Nutrition Programs, please call your local Senior Center.
