For the more frail older adults who are living at home and who have a difficult time eating due to illness or tooth or mouth problems we can provide Ensure liquid nutrition. In 2014 we were able to assist 48 residents struggling with attaining enough nutrition. This program is funded from a grant awarded to us by Lake Toxaway Charities Inc. and private donations. With a signed order of need from their physician we can provide them two cans of Ensure a day, constituting a meal. Our cost is $19.68 per case, which is about 1/3 of the cost if purchased in a retail store. There is no cost to the recipient but donations are encouraged. This service is provided to all residents of Transylvania County. Your donation of $50 can provide a month’s worth of liquid nutrition meals to someone struggling to maintain adequate nutrition.
