Shopping and Meals

Need help at home with shopping or cooking meals?

We can help you with all aspects of everyday food shopping and meal preparation. Whether you need transport to shops, help carrying your shopping bags, or someone to do your shopping for you, we can help.

Our carers can help with everyday food shopping and cooking, including:

  • transport to and from shops
  • help carrying shopping bags
  • shopping assistance
  • meal preparation
  • help using eating utensils
  • assistance with special diets for health, religious, cultural or other reasons
  • help with actual feeding if necessary.

As much or as little help as you want at home

You may only need help with some aspects of shopping and cooking. For instance, your carer can chop and portion a week’s worth of vegetables into separate airtight bags for you to cook each night. Or it might be helpful for a carer to put away your groceries for you after shopping, making sure they are stored in canisters and containers that you can easily access.

Will carers cook the meals I want?

You will decide which meals you wish to cook and eat, and our carers will help you. If you have a special diet for health, religious or cultural reasons, we can assist with that also.

The support Care Connect gave us was wonderful. I doubt we could have coped on our own – thank you.
