Meals On Wheels West

  • A group opportunity. Invite your friends.
MOW West

COVID-19 has changed all of our daily lives. Meals on Wheels West has modified our programs in order to better protect the vulnerable community members we serve. More than 75% of our clients live alone. A key part of the change is delivering multiple meals twice a week instead of daily deliveries of single meals. Shifting the delivery schedule will help to minimize potential transmission of COVID-19 to our clients and volunteers. However, the daily Wellness Check is still a crucial component of our Delivering More Than a Meal program so Meals on Wheels West is turning to volunteers to call clients on days we do not deliver to do a phone Wellness Check.

What will phone reassurance look like?

  • Calls will be on Tuesday & Thursday between the hours of 10:30am-1pm.
  • Each volunteer will need to complete an online background check and fill out a non-disclosure agreement in order to protect MOW West clients
  • Each volunteer will receive guidelines & a sample script for the calls.
  • Each volunteer will receive 2-5 clients to call once a week
  • Each call should take about 5-10 minutes
  • After volunteers are background checked, they can sign up for Phone Reassurance shifts by contacting Maggie (310)394-5133 x3/ margaret @mealsonwheelswest.org
  • Each volunteer will report about their 3-5 clients by filling out the Google Form below However, IN THE EVENT OF AN EMERGENCY contact (310)394-5133 x7 or michelle@mealsonwheelswest.org.
