Who can get Meals on Wheels?
Our meal service caters for people with a wide variety of support needs, not just meals for seniors. Simply, if people are unable to prepare a meal or shop for themselves with ease, we can provide a solution.
You, or someone you know, may be; in their senior years, recovering after hospitalisation, a major illness or surgery, a person with a disability, a carer, or needing assistance due to a special circumstance.
How can I arrange a Meals on Wheels service?
We want to make it as easy as possible.
All you have to do is make a free call to Meals on Wheels on 1800 854 453 and we will help guide you through setting up a Meals on Wheels service.
Those wanting to arrange a meals service subsidised by the Commonwealth Home Support Program, need to be registered with MyAgedCare.
To try and keep this as simple as possible for you, Meals on Wheels can assist you in setting this up.
Or, you can also go direct to www.myagedcare.gov.au or call 1800200422
Traditionally referrals can come from anywhere, including; family members, friends and even by referring yourself! Formal referrals are also happily accepted from general practitioners, heath care professionals, community care providers or your local council. Meals on Wheels still has no contracts or waiting lists!
The only thing that has changed is the need to go through the MyAgedCare, for subsidised meals.
No means test as eligibility is based on need, no contracts and no waiting lists.
It’s that simple.
What is the cost?
Please give us a call to find out the right cost for you.
Prices do vary according to Commonwealth or State subsidy and other variables such as getting meals as part of a home care package.
And of course there is the option of dealing direct with Meals on Wheels if you would prefer to have a private arrangement.
We will be delighted to discuss the value of our nourishing three course meals, delivered to your door, with a friendly smile and a check that our customers are "safe & well".
