Nutrition and Exercise


Meals On Wheels has been serving the nutritional needs of frail elderly and homebound residents in our community since 1958. Each year the program, under the direction of the Visiting Nurse Service of Rochester and Monroe County in collaboration with the Greater Rochester Chapter of the American Red Cross, serves more than 330,000 meals to area residents.


URMC believes there are lots of things we can do to remain active and independent throughout our lives. Physical exercise, even for the frail and elderly individual, is one of the most important.
