Inspiring Seniors Among Us

Meals on Wheels is pleased has partnered with Bardonia Physical Therapy to provide physical therapy services on-site at the agency's five senior centers. A team of trained Physical Therapists come weekly to each of the centers to provide group and individual exercises to center members. Exercises are tailored to meet center members' needs and are provided to seniors with no out-of-pocket cost. "This is such a valuable service," says Jean Labosco, Director of Senior Centers at Meals on Wheels, "as it would be very difficult for many of our seniors to access the services on their own."
