State Unit on Aging Discussion Webinar More Than a Meal: Results of a Pilot Randomized Controlled Trial

Increasingly, senior nutrition programs have been forced by limited funding, rising costs, unprecedented demand and need, and increasing for-profit competition. That is why Meals on Wheels America set out to compare the experience and health outcomes realized by older adults who receive three different levels of service: daily traditional meal delivery, once-weekly frozen delivery and individuals who remain on waiting lists. This presentation will describe the “More than a Meal” project supported by the AARP Foundation and Meals on Wheels America, in collaboration with Brown University’s School of Public Health. Highlights will include a discussion of the impact of varied service delivery models on patient-centered outcomes (i.e., quality of life, social isolation, falls risk, hospital readmission) and implications for state-level decision-making with regard to how service delivery models can be implemented to support optimal client health. This study provides promising proof that Meals on Wheels does, in fact, deliver so much more than just a meal.

In this webinar you will:

  • Gain insight on a ground-breaking approach to investigating the impact of meal service delivery on homebound seniors receiving Meals on Wheels;
  • Discuss how this research can be used to support the selection of service delivery models used by senior nutrition providers.

Presenter: Kali Thomas, PhD, Health Services Researcher and Principal Investigator, Brown University
Facilitator: Linda Netterville, Vice President, Grants Management, Meals On Wheels Association of America
