These companies only use drivers who have passed an enhanced Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) check. For customers buying their meals directly, Sodexo provide a wellbeing check and will contact a friend, relative or us if there is no reply at the door.
Anyone can access these services. It is a good option if you are unable to prepare and cook at least one hot meal a day and can help you maintain your independence and quality of life.
There are other options you can choose from, including other deliver services, supermarkets and shops, or luncheon clubs. You could also make private arrangements for a carer to come in and prepare meals through a private home care agency, but remember to choose one that is registered and inspected by theCare Quality Commission.
Someone to help prepare meals
If you're having problems preparing food and drinks, you may need assistance.
To be eligible, you must be over 18, live in Enfield and need practical help due to sight or hearing loss, physical or learning disabilities, and frailty or illness. Help is also available to people recovering from a hospital stay and needing temporary help to maintain their independence and quality of life. However, in order to work out what help is needed to make life easier for you, we will need to carry out anassessment.
After the assessment we will identify and agree your needs with you and discuss the help and support available to meet them. If you don't qualify for a service from Adult Social Care you could arrange to employ a care worker privately through a private home care agency. You should always make sure they are registered and inspected by theCare Quality Commission.
