HESSCO provides a full array of programs and services to support consumers and their caregivers. Our largest program is our Nutrition Program. With the assistance of an impressive 708 volunteers (made up of individuals and groups who "adopt" routes), HESSCO packages and delivers an average of 130,000 home delivered meals each year and serves an additional 30,000 meals annually in dining room settings. Our drivers not only deliver a hot, nutritious meal, but they provide a wellness check and a friendly visit. This program combats malnutrition, hunger and loneliness. For many, this is the difference to maintain their dignity and independence at home.
As the Aging Services Access Point (ASAP) and Area Agency on Aging (AAA) for South Norfolk County in Massachusetts, HESSCO's mission is to help older adults and individuals living with a disability remain safe and independent at home for as long as possible.
