Meet MOWCM client Helen M. from Ellicott City, MD. Helen is 81 years old and lives alone in her apartment. She loves getting to know new people and socializing with others in her housing complex along with her sister with whom she is very close.

Helen has been receiving home-delivered meals through MOWCM for over two years. She really enjoys that the meals are nutritionally balanced. it is hard for her to choose a favorite between the fish, chicken, and meatballs. Helen loves her delivery volunteers saying, “They are fantastic, just amazing, they are always consistent and friendly. I can tell how much they care and want to be there.” MOWCM is not only important to Helen but to her family, too. Helen comments, “Meals on Wheels provides peace of mind. Not only to us clients who receive the food we need, but to our families as well.”

Throughout the past 15 months of the COVID-19 pandemic, Helen has felt isolated and misses seeing her friends and neighbors. While she enjoys speaking on the phone to others, it is not always the same as being together in person. While the pandemic times have been stressful and filled with anxiety, Helen has hope and looks forward to the future when she will be able to see people again very soon.
