More than just a meal
Meals on Wheels has had a place in the hearts and homes of Australians for now 60 years. Helping the frail older people and younger people with disabilities and their carers stay in their homes where most are happiest is at the heart of the matter. Every day a friendly smile, a chat about the weather, a nutritious meal and knowing someone will drop by to say hello, changes the lives of many Australians and it’s not just the clients who value this contact. Ask any of the 35,000 NSW volunteers and they will tell you reaching out and making a difference in somebody else’s day, makes their day.
Independence is something we all value and to have that taken away through not being able to go to the shops for groceries or to cook regular meals, should not be an obstacle to autonomy.
