QUALIFICATION

 In order to qualify for the program, the senior must have a physical or mental disability that prohibits them from preparing meals. Prior to enrollment in the program the senior is evaluated by Adult Evaluation and Review Services, a division of the Garrett County Health Department, to determine their functional abilities. 

CARE

Home delivered meal participants receive an in-home well-check bi-annually by a registered nurse.  The well-check visit includes blood pressure screening., height and wight, nutrition assessment, medication review, referral to services as appropiate, education and information. 

INFORMATION

Participants also receive nutrition information through a quarterly newsletter and other written materials. 

NO FEE

There is no fee for meals, however, a contribution is strongly encouraged to help maintain adequate services .

Garrett County Senior Nutrition Program

The cost of each meal prepared is $5.25. Voluntary contributions enable the agency to serve more meals.  Individuals who are able to give the full cost of the meal are encouraged to do so; however, all contributions are welcome. Each meal provides 1/3 of the Recommended Dietary Allowances (Nutrients needed daily) for older adults and meets the dietary guidelines for Americans.  Meal reservations and cancellations are to be made at the nutrition site or senior center prior to the next service day. Reservations and cancellations may be made no later than 9am on the service day if absolutely necessary.
