Shopping and meal preparation

10-Jan-17

A regular hearty meal is essential for maintaining good health. Unfortunately, many older people and those with physical or mental difficulties can struggle to maintain a healthy diet.

At Caremark Havering, they are able to offer a personalised service for shopping and meal preparation to ensure that the individuals they care for can enjoy a healthy diet.

Maintaining a healthy diet

The ability to shop or cook can often be a struggle for those that are feeling unwell, or who are suffering with a mental or physical disability. They may resort to snacking on unhealthy foods such as biscuits, cakes and ready meals as a substitute.

Caremark's care workers understand how vital it is to eat meals that are healthy and enjoyable and understand the time it takes to plan and prepare these food choices.

Let’s get cooking

Their service can be tailor made to fit around an individual’s needs. They can accompany clients to the shops and help to stock up on food, or they can do the shopping on someone’s behalf. If an individual enjoys cooking, care workers can assist them with the preparation or alternatively they can sit and relax.

Caremark Havering offers a wide range of services designed to suit an individual’s needs and budget. Their clients range from children and young people, to the elderly and those with learning and physical disabilities.

Services are available 365 days of the year, 24 hours a day, ranging from 30-minutes visits to overnight stays and live-in care.
