Elderly Nutrition - A Success Story
“My whole life changed last year when I had a severe stroke. I am now unable to move the left side of my body and I am confined to a wheelchair”, Judith Pritchett tells us. She is not able to cook or clean for herself. ”As I have no family, Meals on Wheels has made a real difference in my life. For most of the week, I don’t have to worry about how I am going to eat. They deliver hot nutritious meals to my home. I really look forward to seeing them. It is a highlight of my day!” When we see the difference made in the lives we serve, it makes our day too, Miss Judith!
