- Meals on Wheels (Jimboomba area)
- Personal Safety Alarm installation
- Emergency Relief programs if you are experiencing financial distress
- Active Living Program for Seniors (ALPS)
Meals on Wheels
Our Meals on Wheels program is run by our dedicated team of volunteers and staff in South East Queensland. The program offers members of the community low-cost freshly cooked meals, delivered to your door.
We provide meals to the Logan River Valley Region including; Jimboomba, Flagstone, Gleneagle, Cedarvale, Logan Village, Yarrabilba, Tambourine, Logan Reserve, Flagstone, Munruben, New Beith, Greenbank, Boronia Heights, Browns Plains and Chambers Flat.
To be eligible for Meals on Wheels, you will need to be assessed by My Aged Care and be 65+ years, or 50 years for Aboriginal/Torres Strait Islanders.
Once you become a Meals on Wheels client, our friendly Food Services Administration volunteers will ring you for weekly/fortnightly orders to choose your preferred meals.

Active Living Program for Seniors
The Active Living Program for Seniors (ALPS) facilitates a number of free interactive workshops, activities and events for seniors across Ipswich, Somerset, Lockyer Valley and Scenic Rim Regions.
It is a great opportunity to meet new friends, try new activities, learn something new and get active in the local community.
There are opportunities to engage with a wide range of organisations who offer services in the community.
ALPS is interactive. We encourage your input and suggestions to assist us with developing program activities so we can create one that everyone will enjoy!
If you are interested in finding out more please contact us on 07 5600 0730 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Personal Safety Alarms
We provide Personal Alarms to senior clients for security and peace of mind. If you experience an emergency, you can press the alarm and be in contact with an operator in a 24/7 Call Centre run by TUNSTALL who will talk you through what is happening and seek the emergency services you may need.
To be eligible, a person needs to be registered with My Aged Care
(1800 200 422).
It is always good to discuss options with our Alarms Technician based at our Raceview office in Ipswich.
If you wish to learn more about our Personal Safety Alarms or want to have one installed, please contact our Ipswich office during business hours on 07 5600 0730.
