Alice’s neighbor, Michael has a limited income. Yesterday Michael stopped by for a visit and a cup of coffee - and told Alice about his meal delivery with the Meals on Wheels program. The volunteer stayed a few minutes longer and shared some extra information with him about the importance of bone health. She convinced Michael to schedule a bone density scan; and together, they called and made an appointment for next week.
Kitchen Klatch is inspired by the idea of leveraging a current channel. Through a partnership with Meals on Wheels America (MOWA), who delivered meals to over 20% of Virginia’s seniors in 2018. The idea is to go where (some of) our audience is.
Because of their reach, MOWA volunteers and staff may have a unique opportunity to boost awareness and care for older adults who are at risk for fractures or who have already suffered their first fracture, but haven't been screened for or diagnosed with osteoporosis.
