For the 60th anniversary of Older Americans Month, we are honoring our clients and sharing their stories. So, next in our 45 for 45 series are Meals on Wheels San Antonio clients Charles and Cheryl!
Charles, 83, and Cheryl, 78, have been married for over 40 years and have lived in the home and neighborhood they love for 39 years! Both started receiving freshly prepared home-delivered meals in February 2022 and depend on the service for proper nourishment.
Charles has hand tremors that make cooking difficult, and Cheryl recently had a stroke and cannot drive. The meals they receive provide much-needed relief and nourishment. Charles says receiving the meals "is the best part of the day." Cheryl smiles, "Whoever thinks of the dishes, they know what they're doing."
With their home-delivered meals, both can focus on their health and recovery, and despite his hand tremors, Charles can continue to focus on his passion and create art. We're grateful to be part of Charle's and Cheryl's day and to help them stay independent and share their talents with the community.
Thank you, Charles and Cheryl, for sharing your story! We're lucky to have them be part of the Meals on Wheels San Antonio family!
