Meal Preparation and Feeding

At Matrons Care we understand that grocery shopping and preparing meals are a part of everyday life and is required for sustenance and a healthy live. However, when circumstances change, perhaps the unfortunate loss of a partner or a loved one becomes disabled, cooking can become a daily challenge. Often, people resort to cold, dry food such as sandwiches or unhealthy fast food for their daily nourishment. Our professionally trained carers can make sure that your loved ones get a regular healthy and nutritious meal made fresh for them. We offer a variety of care packages which can be incorporated to include meal preparation and feeding on an occasional basis or it can be every day based on the needs of our clients.
