Ready Meals Delivered for the Elderly

Added 512 days ago. 01 June 2020

Are you looking for the best ready meal service for you or your loved one?

We understand the importance of considering your options; making sure that the ones you care for are looked after and well fed, especially if they are elderly or have special dietary requirements.
The enjoyment of a home-cooked meal doesn’t need to stop when you can no longer solely cater for yourself. Choosing an old favourite or being adventurous with new flavours can be as easy as picking from a menu, thanks to the extensive range available at Wiltshire Farm Foods.  

In fact, many ingredients go into the perfect ready-meal delivery service, which you may not have even considered. That’s why we’ve rounded up the most important things to take into account when ordering a ready meal to be delivered to an elderly person and catering for their needs.

Catering For Elderly Meal Time Needs 

Many elderly people struggle to cook for themselves at home. Whether it’s that they find it a challenge to get to the shops, struggle to carry grocery bags or have health conditions that impair their vision or mobility – preparing meals for themselves can be a tricky scenario.  

Ensuring that they eat a healthy nutritious meal can therefore be difficult and it is a challenge for many who care for an elderly relative or friend. That is where using a frozen ready meal service can help – reducing the time and strain on cooking for those eating, as well as those caring for an elderly person’s well-being.

The Most Important Things to Look Out For When Ordering Ready Meals For The Elderly


Our chefs love creating popular cuisines for our customers, as well as rustling up new and seasonal dishes throughout the year. From traditional roast dinners and a classic fish and chips, to vegetarian or specific dietary dishes – we cater for all taste buds.  

Simply browse the range and check against your preferred meal choice for real customer feedback when you’re looking for a tasty dish. 

Rest assured, we pride ourselves on our tasty frozen ready meals and you will never be limited on choice. What’s more, you can even enjoy our Satisfaction Guarantee promise - if our food doesn’t hit the spot, we’ll replace it absolutely free.* 


It’s a good idea to look around at reviews of frozen ready meal providers that cater for elderly needs. With so many review sites and message boards online, you’ll normally find at least a handful of reviews and testimonials for each service. Seeing what other people are saying about them can help you make your decision. 

Here at Wiltshire Farm Foods, we are proud of our Trust Pilot’s ‘Excellent’ customer rating, for our food and customer service experience. Something we strive to deliver every single time.   

It’s a good idea to look out for reviews and FAQs from other customers too, and if you still have any questions, we always welcome you to get in touch for a quick chat.
