Giving Tuesday 2023

Mission & Vision

Our mission is to keep our older neighbors and friends healthy and safe by providing effective programs and supports to help them stay connected to our communities.

Our vision is for all families and older adults to have access to accurate information and effective programs that support them as they manage the many transitions that are part of the aging process. In doing so, our older friends and neighbors can stay as independent as possible for as long as possible.

Meals on Wheels

LifePath delivers Meals on Wheels meals Monday – Friday to homebound older adults throughout Albany County. 

All Meals on Wheels meals are cooked from scratch daily at our Albany Kitchen and are approved by a registered dietitian to ensure that each meal is balanced and nutritious.

A knock at the door might not seem like a big deal to many of us. But, to a homebound senior, it could signal the arrival of the only person they might see all day or all week long. It brings hope. It brings health. It brings the nutrition and care that will completely make their day. A knock from Meals on Wheels can even save lives.

Tailored Nutrition

Serving good, healthy meals designed to ensure seniors have the nutrition they need and to meet specific needs and preferences of each individual.

Social Connection

Building and maintaining social connection to help seniors feel less alone, including phone calls and friendly visits.


Assessing the home environment to make sure it is safe, identifying and addressing hazards, directly or through referral.


Sharing valuable information, connecting clients to additional services and responding to the emerging needs in the community.
