November 7, 2017

HAND In-Home Care has a new name and a new location. 

The non-profit, which serves low-income homebound seniors and adults with disabilities who need assistance with activities of daily living, is now Meals on Wheels Central Texas In-Home CareThe renamed agency has also moved from its old offices on East 2nd Street into Meals on Wheels Central Texas’ Central Kitchen location at 3227 East 5th Street.

“Having all of our programs under one roof means easier access for clients to our wide continuum of services.  It also streamlines communication between staff, ensuring quick, informed assessments of clients’ needs and prompt delivery of our services to homebound older adults and people with disabilities,” said Adam Houser, President/CEO of Meals on Wheels Central Texas (MOWCTX).

MOWCTX services include nutritious lunchtime meals delivered by dedicated volunteers who also perform safety-checks, in-home personal care, major and minor home repair, respite care for people with Alzheimer’s or dementia, assistance with grocery shopping, and free pet food and basic veterinary care for clients’ furry friends. Demand for these services continues to grow since Austin has one of the fastest growing senior populations in the nation.
