Hot, culturally appropriate, meals are delivered fresh each day from Monday to Friday in certain areas at lunchtime. For many people who would like meals but live outside our delivery areas we have developed a Frozen Meals Program. This program is also available Monday to Friday and any number of meals can be picked up from our facility either on a weekly, fortnightly or monthly basis.

Many clients also collect frozen meals each month when they attend our Monthly Activities Group. The Monthly Activities Program aims to address social isolation and encourage community participation.

Social Support Individual and Group

The Monthly Activities Program aims to address social isolation and encourage community participation. This program aims to help many families and especially those who live alone to get out and enjoy some company within the community on a regular basis. At these sessions, following a three course lunch we play bingo and have guest speakers. Musical and comedy entertainment has also been provided that has proved very popular and enjoyable.

MACASA also provides services that include domestic assistance, language assistance, transport to medical appointments or social activities, social visiting, social activities to alleviate isolation and assistance with shopping.

Full-day & Mini Bus Trips

We run regular Bus Trips to local South Australian tourist attractions for our clients. Each trip includes a three-course lunch plus morning and/or afternoon tea. Favourite destinations include Victor Harbor, the Adelaide Hills and the Barossa Valley.

For our elderly clients who don’t have access to transport, we run shorter Mini Day Trips where we collect clients directly from their homes, take them for a lunch-based outing (like a cruise on the Port River or a movie day) and then drop them back at their homes.
