Help Us Meet the Needs of a Rapidly-Aging Ocean County

As a society, advancements in healthcare, technology and medicine mean we’re living longer, healthier lives than any previous generation. While this is undeniably good news, it comes with extra costs, responsibilities and challenges, especially right here in Ocean County.

Here are the facts:

  • The 85+ age group is the fastest-growing population segment in America.
  • They are three times as likely to need nursing home assistance, or placement in assisted living facilities.
  • Ocean County is home to the two towns with the largest percentage of 85+ senior citizens in the entire United States–Berkeley and Manchester.
  • Increases in technology and better healthcare is prolonging the lives of our seniors. This is great news, but in many cases, seniors are outliving their savings.
  • Meals on Wheels of Ocean County program serves a huge segment of 85+ seniors throughout Ocean County.
  • Thanks to the nutritious, low-cost meals we provide, more 85+ Ocean County seniors are able to remain in their home.
  • Without our help, many of these seniors would be in state-funded institutions, costing taxpayers millions upon millions of dollars per year.

Together, we can feed all of Ocean County’s thousands of seniors. Donate today.

Please Note: We appreciate your donation. Please keep in mind when donating it costs approximately $10.00 to provide one meal.
