Katherine & John

In Henderson County, we fight for our elderly citizens.


The Council on Aging for Henderson County has provided and coordinated services to keep older adults living independently since 1969. The Council’s Meals on Wheels program provides a hot meal every weekday for homebound older adults in Henderson County. In addition to receiving a nutritious meal, Meals on Wheels clients receive important social interaction with caring volunteers. These visits, which also serve as regular wellness checks, often turn into lasting friendships.   Volunteer Driver John Sherrill has been delivering meals and smiles to Council on Aging clients for many years. One of John’s daily routes includes a stop at Ms. Katherine King’s home in Dana. Each day around noon John drops off a hot, nutritious meal to Katherine, and the two enjoy having conversation before John’s next stop. Last year, John and close to two hundred other volunteers delivered more than 55,000 meals to over 500 clients in Henderson County.
