Older People’s Services

The aim of our older people’s service is to encourage positive and healthy ageing as well as supporting independent living. One day a week the Social Centre offers social and recreational services for older people. This includes morning tea, lunch and recreational activities and much more. A Meals on Wheels service also operates from our Social Centre and this provides nutritional affordable meals to older members of our community.

Meals on Wheels

Mondays & Wednesdays

We provide nutritious and affordable meals to older members of the community. Referrals are made by the local Public Health Nurse and coordinated by our Support and Development Worker, Liz O’Hare. It is with the help of a group of hard-working and dedicated volunteer cooks and drivers we are currently able to deliver over 50 meals per week.
