Welcome to the Boston Elder Nutrition Program. Our mission is to assist the elderly and disabled to remain independent through the coordination and delivery of high-quality, healthy, nutritious meals, to the home or to community settings.
The Boston Elder Nutrition Program is an innovative collaboration among the Age Strong Commission, and the elder services non-profits Central Boston Elder Services, Boston Senior Home Care and Ethos, all working together to bring healthy food to seniors.
At the core of our program are nutritious meals, companionship, and a watchful eye on the health and safety of our seniors. For those who have trouble getting around, we bring the meals to you. For others, we serve in community centers and other gathering places in our neighborhoods.
Adequate nutrition is necessary for health, functionality, and the ability to remain independent. Healthy eating can increase mental acuity, resistance to illness and disease, energy levels, immune system strength, recuperation speed, and the ability to manage chronic health problems. The Boston Elder Nutrition Program ensures that seniors have access to adequate nutrition even when family support, mobility, and resources are lacking.
