There are many aspects involved in this service from helping you to go food shopping, planning what meals you are going to eat, preparing them, and cooking too. We are with you every step of the way when it comes to maintaining a nutritious and tasty diet.

What does the Service offer?

We can help with many things from preparing meals to organising what food you are going to have and when. This starts with getting to the shops and knowing what you need to buy, and Age UK can make sure you stay organised. The next step is planning what meals you are going to have and when, and we can even help cut some vegetables or prepare those meals you are going to have when our carers have gone. We are even here help you cook, to make sure you are receiving exactly the care you need.

Your health is important to us, and food should be enjoyable, nutritious and delicious. Our carers can offer a service that matches your needs from making sure food is within its best before date, or planning your meals for the week ahead.
