BACKGROUND
Nueces County Community Services began the Meals on Wheels program in 1989 to meet the ever growing needs of the seniors in rural Nueces County.  This program helps to effectively meet the needs of the seniors in the program area.  The program currently serves Robstown, Banquete, Driscoll, Agua Dulce, Bishop, Petronila, Port Aransas and the surrounding communities.  This program provides a well balanced, 1/3 RDA, nutritious hot meal to persons who are not able to provide for themselves as well as the physically challenged.  

An additional benefit provided by the program is daily contact with the homebound seniors. This provides a source of aid to the senior.  Meal delivery personnel are trained to notice any changes in the senior and any changes in the senior's environment.  In cases where seniors do not receive their meals an attempt is made to locate the senior.  Any Changes to the senior's status are reported to the HHSC caseworker within 24 hours.
