Use the procedure below to arrange Meals on Wheels:
Home-delivered meals are a community service for people who are homebound and unable to prepare a meal for themselves and other family members. Patients are responsible for the costs, but several agencies are able to charge using a sliding scale fee.
If the patient lives in the area a referral can be made to:
- Independent Living: (608) 274-7900 (evening meal only)
- Visiting nurse services: (608) 257-6716 (noon meal only)
When the patient lives outside of the local area other agencies can help us find the appropriate meal program. Calling a home health agency, nursing home or hospital can lead us in the right direction.
- Patients can specify the diet they require with most programs.
- Agencies appreciate at least 24 hours notice to confirm diet and arrange delivery.
