About

Friends from Meals on Wheels--a friendly home visitor program for seniors receiving Meals on Wheels in Santa Clara County--is looking for students who have an interest in physical/occupational therapy. Volunteers would apply their knowledge and utilize our ready to use at-home physical activity guide to help homebound older adults receive weekly exercise.

We are actively searching for those who are personable, passionate, and motivated towards health and health education. All educational tools will be provided although your own transportation is needed as these clients are all homebound with no way to get to a certain location.
