Meals on Wheels

We cook all our delicious, highly nutritious meals in our Tumut kitchen using local produce where possible. Our meals are ready to be delivered to people in the Tumut, Gundagai, Lockhart or Urana areas. We also offer a large range of frozen meals for pick-up or delivery which are perfect for reheating on the weekends or for a night-time meal.

Flexible respite

If you’re a carer for a frail-aged person, you might need a break every now and again to recharge your batteries. Flexible respite gives you a chance to take some time out for yourself, knowing that someone is there to look after your loved one.

Social support

If you’re feeling lonely or isolated, we are here to connect you to friendly company and perhaps a wider social network. We offer both group and individual support.

Home modifications

Your home may need a few modifications to make it safer for you to live there longer. We can assist with having doors widened, a ramp added, bathrooms modified or handles attached - just to name a few.

Commonwealth Home Support Program Fees

The Commonwealth Home Support Program is subsidised by the Australian Government.

Often this doesn’t cover the full amount, so client contributions might be necessary. Special consideration is available to anyone experiencing financial hardship. This will be assessed through the My Aged Care process which Valmar can assist you with.
