Celebrating Meals on Wheels America - thank you Senior Services of Alexandria for helping to feed home bound Alexandrians!

March is the month to celebrate the wonderful work of Meals on Wheels!

Meals on Wheels America established the #MarchforMeals campaign in 2002 to recognize the Older American Act Nutrition Programs for both congregate and home-delivered meals and to raise awareness about the
escalating problem of senior hunger in the United States.

This program was created as part of the Older Americans Act of 1965, signed into law by President Richard Nixon. During the month of March, Senior Services of Alexandria, in partnership with the City of Alexandria’s Division of Aging and Adult Services, will reach out to our community to bring awareness of senior hunger through volunteering to deliver Meals on Wheels or supporting local senior centers and programs that support older adults.

Champions Week will be March 16 – 21, when community leaders, government officials, and local businesses and organizations will deliver Meals on Wheels to homebound seniors and get a firrsthand look at how important Meals on Wheels are to our senior neighbors.

To volunteer to deliver Meals on Wheels or Groceries to Go
(another Senior Services senior nutrition program), visit https://seniorservicesalex.org/volunteer/ or call 703-836-4414.

Just today, while brainstorming at the office with one of our nurses, we both said that the family we were helping would be helped even more if they worked with an Aging Life Care Manager. It is a team approach. We are thankful for the many talented and dedicated ALCMs who make a real difference in our client’s lives!

Virginia Hospital Center

Are you a caregiver of an adult and looking for support and reinsurance? Would you like to talk with others that understand what you are experiencing as a caregiver? Virginia Hospital Center’s Senior Health Department hosts a free support group for caregivers of individuals living with dementia and Alzheimer’s. The group meets the 3rd Wednesday of the month from 10:30-11:30 AM at the First Presbyterian Church of Arlington. In addition, the hospital co-hosts a free Parkinson’s “side by side” support group along with Old Dominion Home Care and the Parkinson Social Network. “Side by side” means that there are two groups – one for caregivers, and one for people living with Parkinson’s, each with their own space near each other during the meeting. This group meets on the 2nd Tuesday of the month from 10:30 AM - 12:30 PM at Our Lady Queen of Peace Church in Arlington. Please visit https://www.virginiahospitalcenter.com/programs/community/senior/caregivers.aspx for more information. All are welcome to join.
