Meals on wheels services are provided in most areas of Argyll and Bute.
Two course, hot, midday meals are prepared in local schools or care homes and are delivered to service users in their own home by RVS volunteers.
The charge for meals is currently £5.35 per meal and is billed on a 4 weekly basis.
Referrals for meals on wheels are usually made by health care professionals (GP, District Nurse, ward staff, Occupational Therapist, Physiotherapist), carers, carers centres or are self referrals.
Referrals should be made to the local social work department. All referrals are considered and the referrer will be notified that their request has been received and acted upon.
