The service is suitable for retired people who need a little support, for example we will cut food up for clients to make it more manageable for them and will blend food when necessary (e.g. for clients recovering from strokes).

It is not suitable for people who need personal care (e.g. toileting, lifting, bathing etc.) or people with moderate to severe dementia.
