More support for community care
THERE will be more hot meals on the way for people in need such as James Watson thanks to continuing State Government support of the Home and Community Care program.
Mr Watson, who gets Meals on Wheels delivered three times a week, said the hot meals were “terrific value” at $6 each, and made a huge difference to his life.
“When you live on your own, you don’t always feel like cooking,” he said.
“There’s a variety of meals available, and there’s always a soup, a main and dessert.”
Cook MP Jason O’Brien recently announced nearly $120,000 worth of funding for the Mossman hospital and for Goobidi-Bamanga, which deliver health and home care services to people in the Douglas region.
Goobidi-Bamanga was awarded $49,699 to refurbish a building and buy equipment, while the Mossman hospital got $64,500 to build and modify buildings.
