The owner of the Buffalo-area Home Instead Senior Care office is on a mission to see more families share sit-down Sunday dinners with their senior loved ones. The reason? New research shows that half of surveyed families living near senior relatives feel they do not share enough meals with older loved ones, losing an important family connection.
“For seniors, it’s not what’s on their plate that matters most at mealtime – it’s who is at the table with them,” Lisa Wiedemann said. To encourage more of these meals, the Home Instead Senior Care Foundation will donate $1 to Meals on Wheels America for each person who commits to regularly scheduling family dinners at SundayDinnerPledge.com.
