Meal Preparation – QCSS

Help with healthy, nutritious meals at home

Eating a balanced diet with three nutritious meals each day is an important part of maintaining a healthy lifestyle. If you find it difficult to cut up vegetables or buy food from the supermarket, we can assist you by:

  • Coming to your home and preparing food for you to cook
  • Taking you to your local shopping centre and helping you shop for food

Our friendly team of dietitians can also help you to create meal plans that include foods that you like and provide all the vitamins and minerals you need.

Our services can be used daily, weekly, or just for a short time while you recover from an illness or surgery.

Costs & Eligibility

Our disability and health services are available to people under the age of 65 (or under 50 years for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders), who have a disability or other condition that makes it difficult to carry out everyday activities.

The cost of your services is determined by your eligibility for Queensland Community Support Scheme (QCSS) funding. If you’re not eligible for subsidised services, you can still receive services by paying the full cost yourself. Read more about costs & eligibility for Queensland Community Support Scheme.


We have branches all over Queensland from the Gold Coast to Cairns. Find your nearest Ozcare branch using our ‘locate a service’ finder.
