Meet and Eat is a project that aims to target older adults who are socially isolated, living alone and in particular those who are vulnerable due to physical, mental, or cognitive impairment. Area covered: Arklow and the surrounding areas (from Aughrim to Glenealy).
12 volunteers (male & female) are to be recruited to assist with preparing simple nutritious meals and providing companionship at mealtimes once a week in the older person’s home. Volunteers will receive training and Garda Vetting. If you know of any vulnerable adults in the target area who would benefit from this intervention or if you know a suitable volunteer please get in touch with us. Volunteer recruitment & training will take place with the program being rolled out in November.
