We use a client's medical diagnosis to determine eligibility. Medical diagnoses are confidential and protected by New York and New Jersey state law. Clients need to give us access to their most recent medical records.
Clients can give consent by:
• Signing our HIPAA release form.
• Giving verbal consent to allow us to speak with their medical care provider and others involved in their general care (such as family members, case managers, social workers).
• Submitting a health care proxy or power of attorney.
• Submitting a release form from their 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 212-294-8102 to discuss eligibility for our services.
Clients receive ten meals a week (five lunches and five dinners) to last them Monday through Friday. Lunch is typically a roll and a soup; 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.
We deliver Monday through Friday, between 8am and 4pm. Because we serve so many clients, we cannot guarantee a set delivery time for each client, and times may vary due to traffic or weather.
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.
No. We have never put potential clients on a waiting list. We process referrals and applications as we receive them, usually within 1-4 days.
We provide our services regardless of income.
We serve to over 200 individual diagnoses, including and not limited to:
• Alzheimer's Disease
• Parkinson's disease
• Severe Diabetes
• Renal failure
• Congestive heart disease
• Kidney Disease
• Multiple Sclerosis
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 meals?
