What does it do?
The meals service, provided by Manchester Fayre, they deliver hot or frozen meals to residents who are unable to cook for themselves for a variety of reasons. Hot meals with a dessert are delivered each day, on the days you've agreed you need them, this might be every day, or just a few days a week if you have help on the others. With frozen meals, you get a number of meals delivered on the same day to put in the freezer. Again, the number you get depends on what you've agreed with your care manager.
Who it is for?
The service is primarily aimed at older residents who want to remain independent, but other groups can make use of the service too, for example those who have physical disabilities.
