Social connection

You may have heard the saying that Meals on Wheels is ‘more than just a meal.’ This is because through a friendly chat and smile, our essential service reduces the social isolation risk of one in four older Australians who live alone.

Meals on Wheels staff and volunteers form meaningful connections with you and genuinely care about your health and wellbeing. Each delivery provides an opportunity to catch up and check-in with one another.

Human connection is more important than ever. Many Meals on Wheels customers say they find the friendly conversation they have with delivery personnel at each delivery, more important than the meal itself.

Through the social and wellbeing checks performed at each delivery, Meals on Wheels keeps you connected to your community and living independently and well in the comfort of your home.
