SHINE Community Services is jointly funded by the Towns of Mosman Park, Claremont and Cottesloe and the Shire of Peppermint Grove along with the State Government’s HACC programme.

Our services cater for seniors or younger people with disabilities, and carers of both groups. Persons eligible for the SHINE programme must reside in the local government areas of Claremont, Cottesloe, Peppermint Grove and Mosman Park. HACC eligible residents can reside elsewhere.

Services are designed to help people to continue to live in their own homes. SHINE’s aim is to promote independence by helping clients find new ways of performing tasks and by only carrying out tasks which people are physically unable to perform themselves, as well as promoting well-being and an active social life.

The first time a client contacts SHINE, details are required, such as name, address, phone number, Doctor and a brief medical history of the client. When receiving a subsidised service, each client will be asked to complete an Income Assessment Form, simply specifying where they are on level 1 or level 2 income.

Meals on Wheels

Meals on Wheels volunteers delivering meals to residents

At the Shire of Peppermint Grove, ‘Meals on Wheels’ services are coordinated by a team of voluntary drivers through the City of Stirling.

The nutritious 2-course meals, a main meal and dessert, are cooked daily in our purpose-built kitchen and delivered 5 days a week—we cater for one main meal a day, 7 days a week (multiple meals may be purchased). A bottle of orange or apple juice is also supplied once a week. Currently an 8-week cyclical menu is in place.

The meals are delivered freshly chilled, so you can heat and eat when it suits you. We are able to cater for some individual requirements such as texture-modified meals, or specific diet-related meals such as vegetarian and diabetic friendly meals.

City of Stirling food services is proud to have achieved and maintain an internationally recognised food safety program (HACCP). This food safety system is independently externally audited twice a year and ensures the safety of your meals.

Eligibility

A referral can be made by anyone including the person needing the meals, relatives, friends, neighbours, hospitals or doctors. Meals are able to be delivered the next working day. The meals are available to people who have a disability or health condition that makes preparing their own meals not possible.

Assessment

The City of Stirling has adopted the ‘wellness approach’ which aims at assisting the client to remain independent and maximise their functional independence and wellbeing. A Regional Assessment Officer (contact 1800 052 222) will make a home visit and do a Home and Community Care assessment regarding the client’s health, social and personal needs.

Register for Meals on Wheels

If you would like to register for Meals on Wheels or would like to receive further information about the service, please telephone (08) 9345 8848.

Cost

The cost of a delivered two-course meal is kept to a minimum. For the current price, please telephone Community Services on (08) 9345 8578 or the Meals on Wheels kitchen on (08) 9345 8848.
