A client's eligibility is determined by his/her medical diagnosis, which is confidential and protected by New York and New Jersey state law. Before we can process any referral, we need to ensure that clients understand that we will need access to their most recent medical records.
Client consent can be given to us by: signing our HIPAA release form (which can be found on our Forms page); verbal consent allowing us to speak with the client's medical care provider and others involved in their general care (such as family members, case managers, social workers); via a health care proxy or power of attorney; or by submitting a release form by the client's hospital or case management agency.
We want to ensure that our clients get all of their meals and that this food is safe to eat. To guarantee that this happens, we do not leave food with anyone outside of the client's apartment or home, and we will not leave it on a doorknob or outside. If a client has an appointment, deliveries can be cancelled or clients can have someone stay in their home during delivery hours.
No. Our meals and nutritional counseling are only offered to primary clients, children in their care, and senior caregivers of our senior clients.
Each individual's situation is different. Please call our Client Services department to discuss eligibility for our services.
Clients receive ten meals a week (five lunches and five dinners) to last them Monday through Friday. Lunches consists of either a bagel or a roll and a soup. Our delicious dinners include an entrée and a dessert. For example, a client might have beef and bean soup with a whole-wheat roll for lunch; BBQ chicken legs with green peas, roasted peppers and brown rice for dinner; and, blueberry chocolate cake for dessert.
Meals are delivered Monday through Friday, between 8:30am to 3:30 pm. There is no set delivery time for each client, and times may vary due to traffic or weather. Delivery schedules are determined by zip code.
God's Love We Deliver prepares individually tailored, home-delivered meals to people who are too sick to shop or cook for themselves. We believe that no one should suffer the dual crises of sickness and hunger. While we make every effort to enroll individuals in our program, at this time we are unable to enroll individuals who come to us due to:
- Mental illness
- Advanced age and frailness
- An injury, chronic disease or physical syndrome since birth.
We understand that each individual's situation is challenging. If we are unable to enroll you in our program, our Client Services representative will refer you to one of our Agency Partners or Community Partners.
Clients can call the Client Services Department at 212-294-8102, or email us firstname.lastname@example.org, 24 to 48 hours in advance to cancel a delivery for any reason. If this appointment is a standing appointment that will always be on the delivery day, we can arrange deliveries around your appointment.
We can make special arrangements for the initial phone interview. For example, potential clients can call us during appointments with their case managers or from someone else's phone. In such circumstances, we must have an emergency contact in the event that we are unable to reach the client.
We have never maintained a waiting list for our services. Referrals and applications are processed as they are received, usually within 24 to 48 hours.
We provide our services regardless of income.
We require eligible clients to fill out 3 forms; the Medical Referral Form (which needs to be completed by your primary care provider), HIPAA Confidentiality and Release Form (The client needs to fill this out to enable us to receive medical information to help determine their specific meal plan) and Referral Form (that enables us to begin the intake process). These forms are located on our forms page.
If I'm not home at the time of my delivery, will you leave my food with my doorman, front desk, neighbor, superintendent or on my doorknob?
Is my home health aide eligible for your services?
