Help to stay living at home

If you are struggling with everyday tasks (for example getting dressed or washed), if you have been discharged from hospital or have had an accident or illness, there are a number of services that can support you to stay living at home. 

Meals at home

Our meals at home service supplies fresh and nutritious hot and frozen meals direct to your home to help you stay living independently.
