Food Preparation Services
One of the main barriers to less able people continuing to live independently is food preparation and being unable to effectively and safely cook and prepare their own meals. Some people with less able loved ones may be concerned about the potential for danger arising from hot kitchen equipment or sharp utensils. Perhaps you are less mobile yourself as a result of an illness or injury but would still prefer home-cooked meals to ready-made alternatives.
Help With Food Preparation For Less Able People
Some people struggle to maintain a meal schedule or may even forget to take meals unless prompted. Our food preparation service is a great way to make sure that loved ones receive the right level of nutrition and hydration throughout the day. Our home-helpers can help maintain eating schedules, and encourage food intake by preparing a good variety of quality meals based on you or your loved one’s individual preferences.
Making Home Cooked Meals Accessible
Food Preparation services remove the need for less able people to prepare meals for themselves.
Some items of kitchen equipment can be challenging for a less able person to use. People who are less mobile or who use mobility aids such as wheelchairs and scooters may not be able to safely reach appliances such as cooker hobs, while people with cognitive impairments may find devices such as microwaves difficult to navigate. Our home helpers can visit you or your loved one at set times of the day and prepare meals in the home, fostering a sense of familiarity, security and aiding independence.
Menu Planning For Less Able People
We want you or your loved one to feel confident and in control of meal variety.
Our qualified home-helper will take the time to get to know food preferences, dietary requirements, allergies and personal tastes when considering what meals to prepare. A menu plan will be drawn up with your or your loved one having final say over the plan and schedule. Meals will be rotated accordingly to maintain variety, interest and nutritional balance. Of course, our meal plans are flexible and we will always endeavour to accommodate any special requests or short-notice changes.
Our meal preparation service is completely customisable and tailored to your unique situation.
Perhaps you or your loved one finds home cooking and meal prep a challenge but is able to use appliances to re-heat pre-prepared meals. In this case batch preparation of meals by our home-helpers may be the ideal solution. Batch preparation means you or your loved one can enjoy great quality home-cooked meals throughout the week without the need to shop for ingredients or cook.
