Meals on wheels

We provide a seven day meal service to older and disabled people in Elmbridge and Mole Valley (Leatherhead, Bookham and Fetcham areas only) who are unable to prepare meals. The service can be provided long-term or short-term depending on the resident's needs.

The following criteria applies:

  • housebound and unable to shop for a main meal
  • at risk of malnutrition; not motivated to cook
  • unaware of time and/or need for regular meals, where there is clear evidence of confusion
  • living with an elderly carer who requires assistance
  • to enable and maintain personal independence
