It's hard to cook when you're busy crying

My uncle is in the hospital, and may soon be in hospice for end-of-life care. My aunt has been carrying the weight of both their worlds, as well as his care, for too long, and she's exhausted and bereaved. Please help me find a way to take the small responsibility of feeding herself off her to-do list.

My aunt and uncle live in the Boca Raton area. Their son (my cousin) and his wife also do, but the rest of their family, including me and mine, live far away. We can't be there to help her in all the ways she could use it while she struggles with my uncle's illness, so I'm trying to...oh, I don't know. I guess trying to take one little worry off her pile, because it's the only thing I can do from up here. I'd like to find a service that will deliver enjoyable, relatively healthy meals to my aunt's home for the next week or two (possibly longer), but my google-fu isn't turning up any such service.
Do these services exist? Can anyone recommend a reliable, good one in the Boca area? My aunt is a bit of a foodie, so if the service does meals somewhat classier than macaroni-and-cheese that would be great, but it needn't be five-star food or anything - the goal here is for her not to have to worry, not to have her writing food reviews.
