Frieda, a talented artist and avid gardener, has lived in her East Vancouver home for 60 years; a house filled with her artwork, and a beautiful garden where she loves to spend her days. A few years ago Frieda had a stroke. Although she is quite mobile, shopping for and preparing meals can be a challenge. Remaining independent and healthy in the comfort of her own home is very important to her.
Twice weekly, Meals on Wheels delivers a hot meal to Frieda’s home. She appreciates the visits by friendly volunteers who take the time to chat and ask how she is doing. “I wait for them – they are my visitors”, says Frieda, of the volunteers. “Five minutes makes a difference for people who don’t get out a lot”.
