* HOME DELIVERED MEALS
Nutritious meals are available to frail, home-bound individuals who
are over the age of 60 and have no familial support and no access to foods. The meals are delivered on a weekly
basis. The frozen meals are conveniently boxed when delivered and can be reheated in a microwave or toaster oven. This program
provides the security of at least one nutritionally balanced meal per day.
Vital Aging operates three wellness centers located
in Kingstree, Hemingway and Greeleyville. Transportation is provided on a daily basis to and from the centers. Senior citizens
who attend our centers have access to socialization, a hot meal, exercise and various stimulating activities such as shopping,
bowling, bingo, crafts, and more. The activities are designed to stimulate or develop academic, social and/or self help skills.
The groups meet from 9:00 a.m. until 1:00 p.m. Monday through Thursday.
