Home Delivered Meals (HDM)
The Chicago Department of Family and Support Services- Senior Services Area Agency on Aging and Meals on Wheels Chicago work collaboratively, providing seniors with the opportunity to reside in their own homes and lead independent lifestyles. The Department provides in-home services to homebound seniors including Meals on Wheels (home delivered meals), chore/housekeeping services, adult day care programs, and respite care.
To learn more about these services, please call the Information and Assessment Unit at (312) 744-4016/ (TTY) 744-6777 to find out whether or not you qualify for these programs.
After an initial phone pre-screening, a case manager will make an in-home assessment of needs to determine if a senior is eligible for in-home support services such as home delivered meals.
