Answer: 

Persons 60 years of age and older who are homebound (unable to drive) and are in need of substantial support in at least two areas of daily functioning (based on an assessment) are eligible to receive Meals on Wheels. You are eligible for Meals on Wheels, regardless of your age, if you are the spouse or domestic partner of an eligible meal recipient who is receiving Meals on Wheels.  You may be eligible if you live in the home of someone currently receiving meals and have a disability as defined by the Center for Medicare/ Medicaid Service that can be verified through SSDI or MediCare documentation.
