Meals on Wheels

Meals On Wheels

If you were alone, at home and unable to cook for yourself, wouldn’t you like to receive a well-balanced, hot meal delivered by a smiling volunteer? Five days a week, approximately 100 older adults in the Lee county area experience that pleasure thanks to the Meals on Wheels program operated by Methodist Senior Services’ Traceway campus.

The recipients of Meals on Wheels must be at least 62 years of age and typically have no other dependable daily source for planning, cooking and serving their meals. Many also have very low incomes. These senior adults are homebound and unable to prepare a well-balanced hot meal. Since there is no charge for the meals, the Meals on Wheels program depends on donations from individuals, businesses, church groups and the United Way of Northeast Mississippi to continue the program.

This vital program would also not exist without the 300 plus volunteers who deliver meals each year. These dedicated volunteers spend about an hour delivering an average of 10 meals to people within a defined route. Volunteers serve from one day a month to several times a week, depending on their schedules.

We need your help to fulfill our mission - to serve older adults in the spirit of Christian love.

In order to serve more people in Tupelo and Lee County, more resources are needed.   If you are interested in volunteering to deliver meals or making a donation to one of God’s older children, please contact us.

Senior Rx

Senior Rx

Senior Rx, a division of Methodist Senior Services, is a closed-door, long-term care pharmacy whose goal is to optimally and efficiently meet the specialized needs of the twelve MSS senior living and residential care campuses serving elders throughout the state of Mississippi. Senior Rx pharmacists provide pharmacy services often provided by contracted pharmacies such as completing federally mandated monthly drug regimen reviews for each resident living at one of MSS's four skilled nursing care sites and six assisted living facilities in Mississippi; working in tandem with physicians on "therapeutic interchange" programs that benefit patients by offering lower cost - but equally effective - drug alternatives than the initial one prescribed; and providing specialized drug packaging designed to decrease medication errors in the skilled nursing environment.

Senior Rx also provides a custom medication dispensing system with multiple check systems designed to prevent adverse drug reactions or interactions. While Senior Rx's services are not available for individual, off-campus use, nursing care facilities may contract with Senior Rx for drug fulfillment services.
