At Beloit Meals On Wheels, we are committed to combating senior hunger and isolation by providing nutritious meals to those in need. Recently, we conducted a client survey to gain valuable insights from our clients. With a 78% response rate, we are thrilled to share the overwhelmingly positive feedback we received, which exemplifies the impact of our services. Below, you’ll find a few key highlights and we encourage you to view the full survey responses here.
Building Meaningful Connections: One of the standout findings from our client survey was that 97% of home-delivered recipients expressed their excitement in seeing our volunteer drivers. This statistic not only reflects the dedication and warmth of our volunteers but also highlights the social connection that our program fosters. These interactions go beyond meal deliveries; they bring companionship and joy into the lives of our clients, reducing feelings of loneliness and isolation.
Enhancing Safety and Security: We are pleased to report that 87% of home-delivered recipients stated they feel more safe and secure when their meals are delivered. This finding demonstrates the peace of mind our services provide, particularly for those who may have difficulty accessing or preparing meals on their own.
Promoting Independent Living: Independence is highly valued by our clients, and the survey results affirm that 97% of home-delivered recipients believe our meals help them live independently in their homes. By ensuring they have access to regular, nutritious meals, we empower individuals to maintain their independence and continue living in their preferred environments/aging in place with dignity.
Improving Quality of Life: We are delighted to learn that 95% of home-delivered recipients reported an improvement in their quality of life through our meal program.
Supporting Health and Well-being: 94% of home-delivered recipients acknowledged that our meals helped them eat healthier and maintain their overall health. By offering well-balanced and nutritious meals, we contribute to the physical well-being of our clients, promoting healthier eating habits and better health outcomes.
