Client Spotlight: John Tass

Surviving a stroke at the age of 41, John Tass was finding it difficult to find a solution to his daily meals.  With limited mobility, he needed something convenient, portion controlled, nutritious, and of course easy to prepare.


Having tried a few different food delivery companies, John decided to give Meals on Wheels Central Coast a trial.  John was pleasantly surprised by the extensive range of items on offer in their menu and after trying the food was converted.  John has now been an extremely happy client for the past 18 months.

As a NDIS client, John is able to take advantage of reduced meal prices with Meals on Wheels Central Coast.  A charge is made against John’s NDIS plan for the preparation and delivery of his meals. John is still responsible for the cost of his meals however is still thrilled with the affordable price and the fact that this service has made his life easier. With meals delivered straight to his door by volunteers, John knows that meals times will be a fuss free time in his household.  With favourites such as Rosemary Mustard Chicken, lasagne and roasts, not only is dinner a delicious experience, but there is ease of cleaning up, making time at home more manageable.

“I’m eating balanced meals now and I don’t have to worry about the hassle of preparation”, John said.

“My partner gets a break from cooking for me, and with Type 2 Diabetes, I’m finding it a lot easier to eat correctly and not put on weight as my meals are now portion controlled.”

John is grateful for the service that Meals on Wheels offer, enjoying not only the meals, but the social aspect of the volunteer visits.  This brightens his day, with volunteers fitting into his schedule to make their deliveries on a fortnightly basis.
