These calls, made regularly between 9:00 a.m. and 11:00 a.m., provide friendship and support and enable us to obtain input regarding the quality of the services from one of the participating clients. This service is offered in both English and Spanish. The Congregate Meals Program, Home Delivered Meals Program and the Telephone Reassurance Program are funded, in part, by the Los Angeles County Area Agency on Aging, through the Older Americans Act of 1965, as amended, the City of Culver City and the generous donations made by program participants and our community. If you would like to make a contribution, please contact Adam Ferguson.
