Charlene has lived in her Maryland home since 1966. The home is filled with loving memories of raising her kids, of good times spent with her family. She’s seen the neighborhood grow and change, watched people come and go, and yet Charlene has no intention of leaving her community.
Her independent spirit guides her life, and she won’t let aging get in the way of that. She simply needs an extra hand to make sure she’s safe and healthy. Thankfully, the regular knock on the door from Meals on Wheels does just that, and enables her to continue to age independently in her own home.
“I always say, as long as I understand things and it's something that I could do for myself, I will be here. It’s my home.”
