Pascack Valley Meals on Wheels is once again participating in the annual March for Meals awareness campaign sponsored by Meals on Wheels America. Help spread the word about senior hunger and isolation in your community. Talk to an elderly friend or family member about Meals on Wheels as a means to stay independent and in their homes longer. Be reminded that the cost of feeding one senior for one year is less than $2,000... compare that to the cost of just one day in the hospital which might cost upwards of $12,000! Let's try to keep our seniors home for as long as possible without recurring illnesses that stem from poor nutrition. Maintaining good health begins with healthy eating at home.
“A deeply affecting, urgently important book – one not just about dying and the limits of medicine but about living to the last with autonomy, dignity, and joy.” – Katherine Boo
“We have come to medicalize aging, frailty, and death, treating them as if they were just one more clinical problem to overcome. However, it is not only medicine that is needed in one’s declining years but life – a life with meaning, a life as rich and full as possible under the circumstances. Being Mortal is not only wise and deeply moving, it is an essential and insightful book for our times, as one would expect from Atul Gawande, one of our finest physician writers.” – Oliver Sacks
“American medicine, Being Mortal reminds us, has prepared itself for life but not for death. This is Atul Gawande’s most powerful – and moving – book.” – Malcolm Gladwell
