A recent customer at ECL Chelmsford had a decline with food and nutrition and was referred to us for support in line with the Care Act 2014.
Our staff worked closely with both the customer and their family over a period of time and slowly, each day they attended, the customer gradually increased their intake with more of a variety of both food and drink, and eventually became comfortable asking for extra helpings of tea and biscuits.
The customer really engaged in this process as they were enjoying their time at the centre.
This may sound small, but it was a huge step for the individual customer resulting in a positive outcome and praise from a concerned and now relieved family.
Prices will depend on the length of your session(s) and the level of support you need. As an example a full day with one of our services would typically start at around £58. Please note that you will be assessed on the levels of support you need.
