Meals On Wheels – Winter Safe and Warm Scheme
By The Business Hive | Posted: 28 Sep 2017
Meals On Wheels, which is delivered by local charity Care4all is launching a Winter Safe and Warm scheme commencing 9th October 2017.
Meals On Wheels will trial an expansion of its service to include a tea time round which will deliver a fresh homemade bowl of hot soup with a bread roll and a sandwich, or a piece of cake.
This service will operate between 4.00pm and 6.00pm (Mon – Fri initially) and will also provide customers with a familiar face and all of the support that our staff give during our daytime service such as medication prompts, plating up the food and helping people to the table.
As the nights are drawing in and it turns colder our staff will also be able to ensure vulnerable people are safe and warm by closing windows/curtains/blinds, locking doors and ensuring that their heating is sufficient before we leave.
The service is being offered in addition to our lunchtime delivery service, meaning those who already receive a 2 course hot meal at lunchtime will continue to do so, or they can add on the tea time service and have two calls per day, giving peace of mind to families that their loved ones are receiving 2 healthy meals a day and that they are safe and warm on dark winter evenings.
This service is also on offer to any new customers who do not currently receive a lunchtime meal but just require something light and warm to eat at tea time.
If our lunchtime customers already receive a tea time snack at lunchtime, we can continue to supply that as we do now, unless they would like to change this and add on the separate tea time call as well.
