Borough Care Residents Enjoying New Meal Service    

Borough Care residents have welcomed the changes to the food on offer at meal times since the service was brought back in–house earlier this year.  Borough Care is the largest not-for-profit provider of care for older people in Stockport and has eleven homes in the area.

As part of Borough Care’s commitment to ensuring its residents eat healthily, the company appointed apetito as its catering partner six months ago. apetito is the leading producer and supplier of meals for the health and social care sectors.

Meals on Wheels

24 per cent of the UK’s local authorities have stopped offering a Meals on Wheels service since 2014. Just 42 per cent of local authorities now offer any kind of Meals on Wheels service to elderly and vulnerable people living in our communities. 

These are the findings of new research from the National Association of Care Catering (NACC) for Meals on Wheels Week 2018 (5-9 November).

The survey of the higher tier authorities in the UK shows a steady decline in the provision of Meals on Wheels services since the NACC first commissioned the research in 2014, when 66% of UK local authorities provided a service, and again in 2016, when the figure was 48%.
