Meals on Wheels are prepared on site in the Ballan District Health & Care’s commercial kitchen for residents residing in Ballan or the surrounding districts. Hot meals are prepared and delivered Monday to Friday (except Public Holidays) and Frozen meals are delivered once a week to the outlying communities. Each meal uses the freshest ingredients and menus are carefully planned to ensure that each meal is tasty, nutritional and well balanced.
Meals on Wheels aims to assist people who are unable to prepare meals for themselves which may be due to a variety of reasons :
- The service can be received for a short time, (such as after an operation)
- Or an ongoing basis
- For the elderly and those with disabilities to remain living independently for as long as possible at home
