Home-Delivered Meals: Update

posted Mar 19, 2020, 2:10 PM by Denise Parrott

Notice to our Meals-On-Wheels Seniors: In order to help keep you safe and reduce face-to-face exposure to others, our drivers will be delivering your meals once per week during this coronavirus outbreak. On days the driver would normally see you, you will receive a telephone “Reassurance Call” from our senior centers to check on your wellbeing. Please answer the phone! Otherwise, we may call the local police to arrange for a non-emergency visit to make sure you are alright.

Although PICCOA senior centers are officially closed to the public, our staff is here if you need us during regular business hours, currently, 9 am – 5 pm. Don’t hesitate to call us if we can help!
Posen: (989) 766-8191......Onaway: (989) 733-2559
