Cooking for yourself can sometimes be difficult. If you can’t open tins, stand for long periods or pour the kettle, there are many pieces of equipment that could help you. Have a look at the Equipment page for some ideas.
If you have difficulties preparing or eating food, you could get advice from the Disabled Living Foundation.
If you can no longer shop, you could have your shopping delivered to your house or consider having meals delivered.
If you have difficulty making meals or managing at home, you can phone West Sussex County Council’s Adults’ CarePoint to ask for an occupational therapy assessment. You can also ask for a reassessment if your condition has changed significantly.
