From our Consumers, Volunteers and Families:

“My mother lives in Westwood and has been getting Meals on Wheels for about a year. She likes the food, and getting deliveries means that she has to shop less and cook less, which gives me some peace of mind. After the pandemic closed everything down, and as social contact became more and more restricted, I just assumed that eventually the Meals on Wheels volunteers would stop delivering, too. Recently I finally realized that that isn’t happening. Meals on Wheels is still coming! Less shopping right now really makes a difference for people like my mother, and it helps her to keep living independently and safely. Thank you so much for continuing this service during a time of crisis! I am so impressed and grateful. I just want everyone to know how grateful I am for Meals on Wheels services in general, and especially now, during this pandemic.”

I’ve been volunteering delivering Meals on Wheels just 3 weeks now and am finding it very rewarding, particularly in these difficult times. All of my consumers are saying, “Thank you! You all are doing a great job”. Thanks HESSCO!

“My experience with HESSCO SHINE in the Norwood office could not have been better! The professionalism and experience of Carole was outstanding. I have to say it was by far the best experience I have had with any organization. I was immediately stuck by Carole’s appointment reminder calls giving me detailed instructions on where to go and what to bring. Once there we covered the general broad strokes I needed to know about Medicare. Then she helped walk me through the process of sign-up and personalized selection of insurance. In two meetings she answered all my questions. No small feat! I actually can’t believe this organization gives as much individualized attention as they do. I would recommend before even starting to think about Medicare to make an appointment with SHINE first. ”
