How Shopping Services Can Help You
Camden Meals on Wheels coordinate a personalised shopping service to support older community members. Sometime clients may find it difficult to get their normal errands completed, so we take away that worry. Our shopping service aims to provide the right kind of support in a way that best suits our clients. It make such a difference to clients, allowing them to retain greater independence.
Our shopping service is delivered by an approved Camden Meals on Wheels Volunteer. Our Volunteers can provide the following service options within the Camden Local Government Area:
- Take the client to their preferred shop or shops so that they can complete their shopping on their own.
- Take the client to their preferred shop or shops and support the client to complete their shopping where needed. This is helpful where the client’s mobility may be limited, but they still wish to shop.
- Collect a shopping list from the client, complete the shopping for the client and deliver the selected items back to the client.
Our shopping services can be completed as a one off service or provided regularly to support our client to remain living indepdendently in their own home.
A nominal fee is charged to deliver this service which is used to reimburse volunteer fuel costs.
