Wellness ChecksA Much-needed, Daily Human Connection

A smile and some friendly conversation can brighten someone’s day and provide just as much positive impact as a healthy meal.

Sometimes a wellness check may be more important than a meal.

Volunteers and staff are always happy to take time during a delivery to check on a client’s well-being and spend a few moments chatting.

We can also arrange regularly scheduled phone calls to clients who need extra check-ins and socialization.

To specifically request telephone care checks, clients and/or their families are encouraged to reach out to us at 570-424-8794. We’d be happy to discuss your needs and arrange support services.


A person, over the age of 18, must be substantially homebound due to physical or mental challenges, and must be unable to shop and/or prepare meals.
