The visit by the volunteer or staff who deliver meals also serves as a safety or wellness check. Volunteers report back any concerns they have to Meals on Wheels staff. Staff follow up with any concerns and may include calling an emergency contact. For many of our participants, a volunteer is the only person they see all day.
In all that we do, Ann Arbor Meals on Wheels seeks to be “more than a meal”. Knowing how important good nutrition and social interaction are to health and well-being, AAMOW staff and volunteers work together to provide nutritiously balanced meals and carry out safety and wellness checks for all of our clients.
