Nutrition and eating well

Poor appetite

Exercise can help you avoid developing health problems such as diabetes, heart disease and mental health difficulties such as depression. It can also increase your appetite. Small meals or snacks, rather than large meals, could be more helpful if you aren't feeling hungry and your appetite is poor. Exercise will also help improve your appetite.

Weight problems

Adults with a Body Mass Index (BMI) over 25 can access a weight management programme from their local Wellbeing Hub.

Visit the Wellbeing website: Weight management services in West Sussex

Difficulty preparing meals

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 and telecare page for some ideas. If you can no longer shop, you could have your shopping delivered to your house or consider having meals delivered.

Living alone

If you live alone, cooking a meal for one can sometimes seem like an effort. Sharing a lunch with someone once or twice a week, going to a café or pub now and again or joining a lunch club could help. Visit the Local activities and groups section to see what is available near you (some offer transport).
