Eating regular, nutritious meals you enjoy is important for your wellbeing and health. It’s equally important for people who love to cook and prepare their own meals, to continue to spend time in the kitchen, with assistance if required.
You may be looking for help to travel to the grocery store or to do your weekly shopping, or a help to prepare a meal for yourself, and a loved one, or perhaps for a family dinner, just like you’ve always done. Our care workers are here to help you continue your traditions, whether it’s driving you to the shops, helping with food preparation, or even cooking the meal for you, under your guidance.
If it’s ready-meals that you prefer, these can be arranged through a range of different brands as part of your Home Care Package.
Other community services provided by Whiddon: Social Support, Social Groups, Nursing and Clinical Care, Pet Care, Home and Household, Garden and Home Maintenance, Care Calls, Personal Care, Technology Assistance.

There’s a variety of ways that you can pay for assistance with meals and groceries through Community Care. If you have a Home Care Package, you can cover the cost of this through your funding. You can also pay for help with meals and groceries as a private service, whether it’s a once-off for that special birthday dinner, or regular help. There are also some options of attending this through CHSP funding, depending on your location and availability of services.
Our goal is to support you to live as independently and as safely in your home and this means being flexible with the services we provide when it comes to meals, food, cooking and groceries.
Yes you can request the meals that you want cooked if our care workers are cooking on your behalf. We’ll work with you to meet your preferences, dietary, cultural or religious needs, and also ensure we’re cooking the way you like it.
