Summary

Meals-on-Wheels is a meal delivery programme to meet the daily needs of the home-bound elderly. The elderly, who usually live alone, depend on volunteers from TOUCH Home Care's Meals-on-Wheels to deliver their meals every day.

 

 

Overview

TOUCH Home Care (THC), a service of TOUCH Community Services, strives to enable the frail elderly to continue to function within the community with the greatest independence and quality of life.  We fulfil our mission by providing essential services including Home Medical, Home Nursing, Home Rehabilitation, Housekeeping, Personal Hygiene, Meals-On-Wheels and Transport/Escort services.

JOIN us now, if you are available from 9.30am to 12.30pm or 3.30pm to 6.30pm, preferably once a week on weekdays (Note: We are currently seeking volunteers for weekdays). Distribution locations include areas around Bukit Batok, Toa Payoh, Whampoa, Bendemeer, Geylang Bahru, Potong Pasir, Bishan, Ang Mo Kio and Jurong. We need both car-owners/ drivers and delivery personnel. Generally, the work involves reporting to the THC office to collect pre-packed food, and then driving along a designated route to deliver the food packages. There will be one driver and assisted by a helper/runner for each delivery route.

 NOTICE - Drivers and Runners in the Western and Central part of Singapore, e.g. Ang Mo Kio, Bukit Batok, Jurong and Toa Payoh, are urgently needed for our Meals-on-Wheels programme. For enquiries please call 6804 6565 or email [email protected] .
