|Meals on Wheels|
Meals on Wheels is a program designed to deliver meals to shut ins, allowing our residents to stay in their homes as long as possible. Usually a person is referred through Community Health services. Recipients receive a nutritious hot meal at noon on weekdays. (Meals are not delivered on weekends or holidays). The program also affords a daily visit from the outside world – for a visit and to ensure all is well. The meal is prepared by the Big Country Hospital kitchen and delivered at noon by a group of volunteers. Cost for the meal is $6.50 per day.
Currently there are 16 groups of volunteers delivering meals to approximately 13 residencies in Oyen. The volunteer groups usually deliver the meals on a monthly basis, but some are for half a month. If you or your organization would like to volunteer for this worthwhile endeavor, please contact Joan Mick at (403) 664-3563.
