Help with meals

Page updated on: 12/10/2023

Sometimes people are not able to cook for themselves, because of illness or frailty, and this can make it difficult for them to continue living independently in their own homes.

It is possible to buy a week (or a fortnight)'s supply of nutritionally balanced frozen meals, delivered to your home, which you can then reheat in a microwave or conventional oven. Oakhouse foods and Wiltshire Farm Foods offer this service in the area.

You can order your groceries on-line and have them delivered to your door. Once you have set up your first shop it is very easy to re-order and plan your deliveries. Supermarkets charge anything between £2 - £6 for delivering groceries, and are sometimes free for large orders. Your local convenience store might also be able to help with shopping – it’s always worth checking.
