While the falling snow makes many of us feel nostalgic and cozy, it can mean those with limited mobility and health challenges are stuck at home. These lonely days with little or no human contact can be very hard on a meals-on-wheels client’s well-being.
Thanks to you, meals-on-wheels clients can count on a daily visit from friendly volunteers.
A visit with Roulant volunteers can be the highlight of a client’s day. Some clients make sure they aren’t napping when their meal arrives. Others greet volunteers with chocolate and tea. For volunteers, it is uplifting and motivating to get to connect with clients. These moments at the door for a caring chat are a boost to their sense of well-being.
Meet Judith and Lawrence
