To Our Community and Friends:

As we roll into 2022- I can honestly say that as an agency we have learned so much through this crazy pandemic.  Our staff and volunteers have really stepped up to support clients every single day.

All programs are running as ”normal” now.  The senior center is open- clients are enjoying breakfast, lunch and activities each weekday.  Meals on Wheels continues to grow – with more than 720 meals delivered each weekday.

The big change recently is that we have closed our Azalea Drive site and combined kitchens at 259 Meeting Street.  This change was necessary for us to streamline production and get meals to clients faster.   We now have a kitchen team and a delivery team.

Having a kitchen team makes it possible for us to host groups of volunteers more easily.   Would your office, small group or civic club like to volunteer and build community?  This opportunity is from 7:30am-9:30am Monday- Friday.  Please email me for more information.

I am unbelievably thankful for each and every staff person, volunteer, donor and grant funder.  Without community support we could not execute our mission- thank you!

Thank you again for your support!

Donna Cook Executive Director

Seniors who have broken a hip by falling can have trouble recovering and regaining mobility.

Here are 10 proactive steps to reduce the risk of falling.

3 Easy Tricks to Read and Assimilate Text Faster for Seniors

It’s highly likely that you don’t remember how you learned to read as a child. However, the way you learned how to read as a child has little relevance to how we should learn how to read as seniors. While the slow process full of methods may work for young people who are trying to understand the basics of words and structure of different sentences, adults who need lots of information to process in a couple of seconds need an entirely different reading method.

Learning how to read and assimilate text is one of the best skills that you should develop today. This skill will save you lots of research and study time. While there are lots of amazing ways to develop this important skill, here are three simple and effective ways. But first, let’s define reading comprehension.

Meals on Wheels Charleston

DELIVERING SO MUCH MORE THAN JUST A MEAL.

See MOW on FB

We are guided by a single goal – to support our senior neighbors to extend their independence and health as they age.

That goal also extends to the dozens of volunteers who work with us. From the kind people who deliver the meals and meet with our clients, to the dedicated cooks in our kitchen—we are all one caring community.

Meals on Wheels of Charleston is a community-based program designed specifically to meet the nutritional and social needs of seniors.

Living Longer, Healthier, and Happier!

Older adults who take proactive steps to prevent memory loss are often more adaptable, independent, and satisfied during their senior years. That’s because the human brain has an amazing ability to change, collect new information, create new neural connections, and store important information in its long-term memory. By developing good habits and seeking out new learning opportunities, you can also improve or maintain your short-term memory (aka your working memory).

Here are some of the best tips for maintaining or improving your memory:
