Who is the Meals on Wheels service for?


Whanganui District Health Board’s (WDHB) Meals on Wheels service is designed for people who need assistance to maintain their independence at home. 

You may be eligible for this service if:

  • you are unable to prepare a hot meal without assistance due to either a medical condition or disability.  (Please note: if this is due to an accident it is the initial responsibility of ACC. You can discuss this with your ACC case manager by contacting ACC. More information is available on the ACC website).
  • you have no family/whanau or caregiver to assist you with meal preparation
  • the provision of a regular meal is needed to maintain your health and prevent unnecessary admissions to hospital.

To apply for Meals on Wheels assistance, please speak to either your GP or another healthcare provider currently involved in your care.
