Proper nutrition and physical activity are vital for everyone, and become even more important as we age. DOROT’s taste–tested, home–delivered frozen meals are available to frail seniors who cannot prepare meals for themselves, whether on a short– or long–term basis. Our wellness classes, offered at DOROT’s headquarters on the Upper West Side, feature exercises, lectures, and workshops geared specifically to seniors’ needs. Participants in both programs attest to a distinct improvement in the quality of their lives.
Kosher Meals for the Homebound
For seniors who have difficulty shopping and cooking, DOROT home–delivers nutritious, frozen glatt kosher meals every week. Seniors choose from a wide–ranging menu, then heat and eat at a convenient time. Volunteers make weekly contact with clients to establish their menu choices.
For seniors who are recovering from an illness or are back from the hospital and in urgent need of prepared food, DOROT will home–deliver nutritious, frozen glatt kosher meals to foster a speedy recovery.
There is nothing like the taste of traditional Sabbath foods—grape juice, challah, gefilte fish, chicken soup, etc. Through the Lillie Schussheim Chaffkin Shabbos Meals program, DOROT delivers these freshly cooked meals to seniors’ homes every Thursday.
