Eulalia is 97 years old and lives in Dallas, Texas. She loves to cook tortillas, enchiladas and especially tamales. But for the past seven months she’s been in a wheelchair, making her unable to walk or cook on her own.
Eulalia relies on @vnatexas
to provide nutritious meals and facilitate the activities that enable her to continue to live independently in her own home. And, she loves the volunteers! All the cards that Meals on Wheels volunteers have given her hang on the side of her refrigerator as a constant reminder that she is not alone.
“They come and they talk to me…they really like me!” she says with a laugh.
Eulalia spent her life taking care of everyone else around her. When she was younger, she stopped going to school so she could help her parents take care of her siblings. Then she raised ten of her own children. Now, it’s her turn to be taken care of by Meals on Wheels.
