Independent Living Systems Launches New "Care Delectables" Nationwide Home-Delivered Meals Service

Tasty, Healthy Meals Help Support Good Health and Independence for Those Who Need Them Most

MIAMI, FL--(Marketwired - March 10, 2016) - Independent Living Systems (ILS), one of the nation's largest providers of home-delivered meals and nutritional services, has launched Care Delectables™, a new meals service available to the general public -- chef inspired and dietician approved.

ILS currently delivers 800,000 meals a month, primarily to those covered by private and government-sponsored care plans. Care Delectables now offers the same tasty and well balanced meals for the general public.

"There is no question that good nutrition plays a critical role in an individual's overall health, but not everyone has the ability or desire to do it themselves," said Nestor Plana, founder, chairman and CEO of Independent Living Systems. "We believe Care Delectables provides a solution for those needing access to and the convenience of affordable, healthy meals."

ILS offers a range of care management services on behalf of health care plans that serve Medicare, Medicaid, dual eligible and special needs members with the common goal of keeping them independent and healthy, and nutrition counseling and in-home meal delivery have been an important component of the continuum of care.

"Research shows that a balanced, nutritious diet can provide an individual with numerous benefits including increased mental acuteness, resistance to illness, increased energy levels, faster recuperation, and better management of chronic health conditions," Plana added.

All Care Delectable menus are designed by registered dietitians and prepared by chefs in USDA inspected facilities. The meals are nutritionally balanced -- provide one-third of the Recommended Daily Intake (RDI) -- and are flash frozen for guaranteed freshness. They are delivered via 2nd day air freight -- 10 meals at a time -- in dry ice in specially designed packaging. Meals can be heated in a conventional oven or microwave by following the simple instructions. After discount, Care Delectables meals cost $89.00 for a 10-pack excluding applicable taxes.

Ordering is available through the Care Delectables secure website at or via phone at 866-405-3433. Most major credit cards are accepted.
