Social Support Group

Social Support Groups provides an opportunity for clients to attend and participate in social interactions which are conducted away from the clients home and in, or from, a fixed base facility or centre based settings. This program provides a social outing for those who meet the eligible criteria; it also enables carers to have a break. The service picks up clients each weekday from all over the Wollondilly and Camden LGA’s.

 

  • Group based activities held in or from a facility/ centre (e.g. pre-set or individually tailored activities promoting physical activity, cognitive stimulation and emotional wellbeing)
  • Group excursions conducted by centre staff to be held away from the centre.

Meals On Wheels Service

 

Meals on Wheels is the service type that refers to:

  • Meals prepared and delivered to the client’s home; and
  • Meals provided at a centre or other setting

 

Providing meals to frail, older people at home, a centre or in another setting may deliver a range of benefits. It is more than just a meal. It is about ensuring people who may not be able to get out and about, enjoy regular social interaction and the comfort of knowing someone will drop by to say hello and see how they are going. Meals on Wheels is not means tested but is a service geared towards the needs of frail older people, younger people with a disability and their carers. The Meals on Wheels program provides healthy and appetising meals delivered directly to the homes of our clients within the Wollondilly Shire.
