A Hundred Reasons Why. Meals on Wheels Central Coast – Supporting our Community

Across the Central Coast, a handful of centenarians and those approaching this milestone, are still living independently in their own homes, thanks in part to the services that they receive from Meals on Wheels Central Coast.

The well respected Central Coast organisation, that has been assisting our community for over 53 years, is honoured to be able to assist this select group of clients.

“One of our main aims is to assist members of our community to stay independent in their homes for longer,” said Dennis Taylor, CEO of Meals on Wheels Central Coast.

“By delivering meals to our clients regularly, we can ensure that they are eating a balanced, nutritional meal. This is especially important for our more elderly patrons,” he said.

The team of volunteers who support Meals on Wheels Central Coast are also instrumental in assisting these remarkable citizens.

“Welfare checks are performed at every meal delivery. Our volunteers will not just leave meals at the premises without being assured that all is well with the client. This a vitally important aspect of our service, and can put our client’s minds, as well as their loved ones, at ease.

“Sometimes, this can be the only social interaction that a client receives, which makes our service even more important,” Mr Taylor said.

Whilst some of these valued clients opt to receive regular meal deliveries, others attend the Meals on Wheels Central Coast Community Restaurants on a weekly basis.

These outings constitute an important social outlet for the clients, who go along to make friends, playing games such as trivia and bingo, as well of course as enjoying a hot meal.

Looking after the welfare of clients is of paramount importance to Meals on Wheels Central Coast, and they look forward to offering their unique brand of support to the community for many years to come.

Meals on Wheels Central Coast are currently compiling snippets of stories on this select group of clients, and they will be sharing these on their website and social media over coming weeks.
