Earlier this month, representatives from various BAYADA Home Health Care offices in Massachusetts had a fantastic day helping senior citizens.

For the second consecutive year, BAYADA supported the Meals on Wheels America’s Massachusetts Emergency Relief Program. The BAYADA-funded program provides seniors with access to nutritious, shelf-stable meals in the event of inclement weather or a disaster, where regular Meals on Wheels meal delivery services are interrupted.
