This week staff at Esperance Home Care celebrated National Meals on Wheels Day. Last year over 6,139 meals were delivered and the Meals on Wheels kitchen also provided 2,230 meals to clients who were attending social activities in the Esperance Home Care day centre. the Meals on Wheels kitchen in Esperance employs two staff members who are supported by a team of around 90 wonderful volunteers.
Support from local Meals on Wheels services makes a real difference in improving health outcomes while reducing health and aged care costs. As well as delivering tasty and nourishing meals that are designed to meet the nutritional needs of older people, Meals on Wheels volunteers bring a daily dose of companionship and human connection, and peace of mind for clients and their families.
If you wish to volunteer or know someone who might need Meals on Wheels, please contact Esperance Home Care on 9083 1800.
