Penticton Regional Hospital - Meals on Wheels
Our Impact Why We Exist
Pride in our past and building our future. Enhancing client care and comfort every day.
Our Story What We Do
In 2006 the Penticton Regional Hospital Auxiliary was approached by the Penticton Regional Hospital Administrator to take over the Meals on Wheels Program. The members voted yes to this project and a Meals on Wheels Committee was formed. We have expanded our services to our clients to include frozen entrees, salads and dessert. Meals on Wheels are now delivering meals to Penticton, Naramata, Kaleden and Okanagan Falls.
Our Programs How We Do It
Meals on Wheels provides hot and frozen meals Monday, Wednesday and Friday. For some of our clients our volunteers are the only person they are in contact with for weeks at a time. There are numerous times when our volunteers have been asked to do minor tasks such as change a light bulb to major help such as calling an ambulance.
