Meals on wheels - Frequently asked questions

A ‘meals on wheels’ service is a community program that delivers nutritious meals to individuals who are homebound and unable to prepare their own meals due to being elderly, illness or with a disability. This aims to ensure that individuals receive nutritious foods while also improving their overall quality of life.

These services typically provide a range of meal options, including special dietary needs such as: diabetic, low fat, low carbohydrate, reducing moderate salt, high-energy, gluten-free, lactose-free, easy-chew or pureed meals. Delivery usually includes a friendly visit and a wellness check, adding a layer of social interaction and safety monitoring for isolated individuals living in their home.

  • Improved Nutrition: Ensures seniors receive regular, balanced meals tailored to their dietary needs, reducing the risk of malnutrition and related health issues.
  • Enhanced Independence: Allows older adults to continue living in their own homes by providing essential meal support, delaying or preventing the need for assisted living.
  • Social Interaction: Offers regular human contact through meal deliveries, helping to combat loneliness and social isolation common among the elderly.
  • Health Monitoring: Provides an informal check-in system, where delivery personnel can notice changes in a senior’s condition and alert family or authorities if needed.
  • Reduced Stress: Eliminates the need for grocery shopping and meal preparation, easing both physical and mental burdens on seniors who may find these tasks challenging.

Your Wellbeing

What our customers say.

My mother came home from the hospital and needed arrangements for hot meals. ICare set this up very quickly, the food was terrific, my mother was very happy with the selection and the helpful drivers. She looks forward to their visit, they are so friendly and it took the pressure off us to be there to prepare her meals.

Bev Hollins

Mum, and I, so appreciated your service and the lovely, cheerful manner of your staff. The drivers did become like friends to Mum and she so enjoyed seeing them every other day and having a little chat. The photo of her and Dom is wonderful! I shall really cherish that and spread it around the family, who will all enjoy it. I want to say thank you from me too. Your service was always so easy to deal with, so relaxed about sudden changes and so supportive in putting things in place - and Mum really enjoyed her meals. I recommend you to everyone I come across who is in a similar position to Mum.

I just wanted to express sincere thanks from me and my sister, for the support that Nicky, Dom and the team provide for our father, Tom. It is reassuring to know that Dad's lunch and supper are taken care of, as he cannot reliably do this for himself. Whenever, I have been visiting, while the food is being delivered, it is obvious that a happy smiling face and the great smelling meal is the highlight of his day.Well done. Your efforts are much appreciated 🙂

Thank you so much for your help in setting up a meal delivery service for my 90 year old uncle and 88 year old aunt. The service was a literal life saver for my uncle, who has Alzheimers, when he was left home alone when my aunt fell and broke her hip just before Christmas and had to go into hospital. My uncle was so impressed with the meals that he suggested that we add my aunt to the meal plan when she came home. They both really enjoy the meals: "smashing", "lovely", "ate the lot" are just a few of their comments. They have also mentioned that meal delivery is always on time and that the staff who bring the meals are always polite, pleasant and helpful. Our experience of the service is overwhelmingly positive and I would highly recommend icare to anyone considering a meal delivery service.Best wishes to you and your team for 2024

Amazing service provided by ICare. Great variety of tasty, healthy and nutritious meals brought daily to your home and served and plated. Welfare check done and any concerns are given to the family. The staff are so friendly and helpful and nothing is too much trouble. As a family we have passed on recommendations and will continue to do so.

The whole process and experience of seƫting up this wonderful service for mum has been excellent Taking the pressure off us and giving us peace of mind. Everyone is so helpful. A first class service, with lovely hot meals delivered to mum daily, by a friendly caring team, who not only deliver but check on mums welfare during the visit.

The service at ICare has been amazing. From the initial phone call to ask about the service, to the people who deliver the meals every day. Everyone is extremely helpful and caring and always respond quickly to any unforeseen changes. Would highly recommend and have done so to a friend who also now uses the service for her Mother.

We have daily meals delivered to my in laws by the Market Harborough depot. I’ve just had to write to tell you how amazing the staff are. No matter what the problem they are always cheerful and very helpful. Also, the delivery man must have the patience of an angel. My in laws have dementia and their behaviours change daily so it can’t be easy for him. Please pass on our thanks for their help in a very difficult time for us.
