Home care - Food services


Healthy food - home delivered.

Food services and food deliveries are an integral part of health care for most people receiving home-based care as they are not able to shop and prepare meals themselves. Nourishing, healthy foods are necessary ingredients of home care as without good nutrition, recovery and wellness is not possible.

Home care recipients in Australia have many options for home-delivered foods, in particular in metropolitan locations and larger rural towns. They can have super market foods, organic fruit and vegetables home delivered and use a myriad of food outlets that also offer deliveries. There is an increasing number of internet-based food delivery services as well.

The not-for-profit sector is also active in the area of food services. The most significant provider is the Australian Meals on Wheels Association Inc.

Home care recipients and their carers can arrange Meals on Wheels through state or local Meals on Wheels organisations. The peak body, the Australian Meals on Wheels Association Inc, has up-to-date information about its state-based member organisations. A visit by volunteers, delivering Meals on Wheels is often the highlight of the day for frail old people living alone.

Many ethnic and religious organisation offer food deliveries to hospitals, aged care facilities and patients receiving home care - such as kosher and halal foods.
