Meals on Wheels enables frail older people and younger people with disabilities and their carers to remain in their own homes and enjoy a level of independence and style of living to suit their individual needs.
While aged care or other support may be needed later, Meals on Wheels provides a way for people to stay in the comfort of a familiar home environment for as long as possible.
To be eligible clients need to be part of the Home and Community Care (HACC) program. Eligibility assessments are carried out by the local Meals on Wheels Service who can also suggest other HACC services that may assist depending on individual needs. For more information on eligibility click here

The Services are supported by funding from the Australian Government under the Commonwealth HACC Program.
