Notes

Ours is a hot meal service which operates 7 days per week, 365 days a year, and seeks to support elderly and vulnerable people to continue to live in their own homes and help keep them independent and reduce social isolation and malnutrition. 

We have a wide and varied menu choice which can be completely personalised to suit most tastes, including vegetarian, gluten free, diabetic or just favourites!  Need something for tea? No problem! At the same time as delivering the hot meal, we can bring a sandwich, salad or wrap, along with a cake or cold dessert.

Our service is flexible and can be taken any number of days per week, as an on-going delivery option or just to help someone get over a recent hospital discharge or ill health, or even whilst regular carers are on holiday. There is no commitment and customers can stop/start at any time. Customers can normally start receiving our service within 24 hours of contacting us.

There are a number of factors which prevent malnutrition, hospital admission/readmission and a nutritious meal every day can help particularly when delivered with a smile!  Social isolation is one of the major contributors to limiting life expectancy and our friendly and approachable drivers get to know our customers and spend a bit of time chatting to them as part of our service. We find this encourages our customers to eat and helps us to recognise when any small change suggests we should alert next of kin or relevant health or social care professionals where we have concerns or if our customers ask us to.
