Meals on Wheels

Introduction

Meals on wheels are available to clients living at home who because of age illness or disability are unable to maintain their nutritional status. Short term Meals on Wheels can be provided following an acute illness or surgery or when the main care giver is required to be out of the house for a short period of time


Access to the service is made by referral from your doctor.  Once a referral has been received an assessment must occur prior to meals being received.

There is a cost associated with the service which is currently $5.00 per meal which includes a main meal and dessert
