Meals at home (meals on wheels)

If you have difficulty cooking meals for yourself, we can organise ready-meals to your home. This service is sometimes known as 'meals on wheels'. A range of meals are available which take into account people's cultural and religious requirements, personal preferences and dietary needs.

We provide two different types of service to cover the council area.

The 'meals on wheels' is a two course meal, prepared by our in-house catering service and delivered by either the Royal Voluntary Service (RVS) or Blantyre Volunteer Group, availability differs across South Lanarkshire which varies from between one and five days per week. With effect form 1 April 2016, there is a cost of £3.00 per meal.

If meals on wheels is not available in your area we can arrange pre-prepared frozen meals to be delivered to your home.

Made by Apetito, you can choose from a vast range of frozen meals which will be delivered to your home fortnightly. A menu is left for your to select your two course meal choices and can include either a starter or a pudding. These cost £2.88 per meal.

To pay a meals at home invoice please go to our online payments section and select 'council invoices' payment. Payments can also be made by cash or card at any Pay Point facility or Post Office. Please present your invoice when making payment.

You can discuss having meals at home as part of a care assessment which can be arranged with your local social work office.
