It's 4:30 PM on a spring day. Alice hears a doorbell ring; goes to her front door and finds 5 lightweight pouches hanging on a special rack on her front stoop.
She’s excited because she knows these are part of her self-care after her hip fracture and recovery over the past few months.
She carries the pouches inside easily, and unpacks them. There are also a couple of new exercise cards right in the package.
An hour later, she takes the pouches from the fridge to microwave the easy open containers – on to a plate. Mmm! Tasty salmon with edamame, and a yogurt & fruit parfait for dessert.
It costs about $50 per week to have several meals delivered, but she feels it’s worth it, and her daughter contributes every now and then – and joins her for dinner, of course! And, an after-dinner stroll. Next, she'll try some leg lifts as shown in one of the cards. Best of all - eating healthy like this is a step with such tasty food - and a step that Alice can proudly take to ensure her continued independence and healing.
