Wholesome, healthy, nutritious subsidised meals delivered to your home - or picked up - can be just a phone call away if you're eligible for government assistance.
In a nutshell:
- You may be eligible for meal assistance.
- There's a variety of options to suit you.
- We can help you with grocery shopping and food preparation.
You can choose to order hot, chilled or frozen dishes at reduced cost through Omnicare Meals Service (formerly Meals on Wheels Mid North Coast) as often or as seldom as you wish.
You can arrange this through Omnicare as part of a Home Care Package or if you've been assessed through the My Aged Care call centre and qualify for meal assistance.
Our staff are happy to provide more information about the My Aged Care assessment and can guide you through that process. They can outline your options, whether it's through a Home Care Package or meal assistance.
We also offer support and assistance with grocery shopping and food preparation services to clients deemed eligible through My Aged Care.
Omnicare Meals Service is about more than just nutrition. In keeping with our focus on promoting independence at home, our seven branches - servicing the Mid North Coast from Forster to Sawtell - organise social outings, enabling clients to connect with the community.
Bringing a sense of companionship is a priority for the valued volunteers that deliver meals to our clients.
As with all Omnicare services, you - the client - are at the heart of our operations. We strive to support you in getting the most from life through the opportunities and options we provide.
