Service Wing - Meals on Wheels

This service activity is one of the oldest Centre activity (if not the oldest). Started over 30 Years ago. The Meals on Wheels Service is provided to those elderly members of the community who do not have family/friends to provide them with hot meals during the weekends and Bank Holidays  i.e. Easter, Christmas, New Year, etc.

 

Why do we provide this service?

The Council’s Meals on Wheels service was for week-days only - there was no week-end & bank holiday service, until recently. Council have started the service at weekends now, however views from the members who receive the meals was that they liked the "home cooked meal" and "they liked the personal interaction and sense of belonging to the Sai family" so we have carried on this service.

Currently we have 15 members who receive this service.

 

Who provides this service?

There are 30 to 40 ladies who provide this service, with the youth cooking the meals once a month. The rota is drawn up for 6 months at a time, and each lady member is asked to cook meal for 2 to 3 members. The rota is organised in such a way that each lady has cooking duties only once a month - see example of a rota below.
