Senior Services

Through Meals on Wheels hot meal deliveries, Merrick’s Senior Services program enables area seniors to remain independent and to continue living in their own homes for as long as possible.

Meals on Wheels

Merrick partners with Meals on Wheels of Ramsey County to deliver hot, nutritious midday meals to people who are elderly or disabled.

Meals are delivered by volunteers Monday through Friday between 11:30 a.m. and 1:30 p.m. These visits provide not only food, but an opportunity for human connection.

Each month, we send out a menu with a variety of options to choose from. Weekend meals and frozen meals are also available.

Priority is given to people age 60 or older and individuals who have a permanent or temporary illness, injury or disability. The cost per meal is based on a sliding fee scale.

Yard Clean-Ups

With the help of over 20 volunteers, Merrick provides free Spring and Fall yard clean-ups for Senior home owners on the East Side. Every season we get together and rake leaves, clean up rocks, pull weeds, and trim hedges for people who otherwise would not be able to do so!

This service is entirely free for seniors due to the generous gift of time and energy from our dedicated volunteers.
