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. 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.
