Other Resources and Information

6.     Study of Home-Delivered Meals - Impact of Daily Delivery vs Weekly Delivery vs. Wait-listed Seniors
Meals on Wheels America conducted a pilot research study of the impact of meal service delivery - finding that for seniors who received daily-delivered meals had greater improvements in health and quality of life, and felt safer and less lonely, than those who received frozen weekly-delivered meals.  Study findings<http://www.mealsonwheelsamerica.org/theissue/facts-resources/more-than-a-meal>.
[Note: This study focused on home-delivered meals, which provide a critical service for people who cannot access community-based meals. However, research - including this  recent study<http://www.investigage.com/2015/03/09/closer-look-social-activities-greatest-cognitive-benefit/> - also continues to emphasize the benefits of group connections such as community (or congregate) meals for older adults who are still able to participate in community activity.]
