Serving the North Lake Tahoe/Truckee community, Sierra Senior Services is the saving grace of homebound hungry seniors, especially during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Known primarily for its Meals on Wheels program, Sierra Senior Services delivers meals to people ages 60 and older relying on generous contributions from private donors and some federal funding to keep Tahoe seniors well-fed.
Along with Meals on Wheels, Sierra Senior Services volunteers provide social connection and serve as liaisons for additional support services so that elderly Tahoe residents can continue to live independently. In 2019, Sierra Senior Services delivered more than 35,000 meals to people’s homes. And considering how the health pandemic dominated much of the past year, the numbers are probably much larger for 2020.
To share an example of how Sierra Senior Services has positively impacted the local population, consider the story of a 99-year-old woman who has been receiving Meals on Wheels since 2017. She had limited mobility and wasn’t able to cook, and her children couldn’t give her the level of care she needed. Fortunately, Sierra Senior Services was able to provide meals and check on her throughout the week, making her family feel a little more at ease.
