12.1 Resolution
WHEREAS INTERIOR HEALTH replaced its Meals on Wheels service Oct 15 with a centralized frozen Meals at Home service affecting at least 20 clients in the community.
AND WHEREAS concern has been expressed in the community that the new service will be inadequate for several clients who do not drive and therefore will find it difficult to pick up their meals at the central location in the Green Home.
AND WHEREAS there is also concern that some of the clients are too frail to cook their own meals.
AND WHEREAS clients, many of them living on their own, will lose the great benefit of regular social contact at home with someone in the community.
AND WHEREAS there is concern that many of the clients lack adequate freezer space for the storage of frozen meals.
AND WHEREAS the frozen meals provided by Interior Health will cost more than similar frozen meals that can be purchased from commercial outlets.
AND WHEREAS all the clients previously served by Meals on Wheels rely on very limited fixed incomes.
AND WHEREAS the frozen meals do not provide beverages or salads as was the case with Meals on Wheels.
AND WHEREAS some of the clients dietary and an allergy issues cannot be addressed with frozen meals.
THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED that Council direct its Wellness and Heritage Committee to invite an Interior Health representative or representatives to attend a meeting of the Wellness and Heritage Committee to answer questions about these concerns and others that have been expressed to some members of Council.
