COESCO DEZA S.L. started its activity back in the year 1983. Since then, the company has been providing a wide portfolio of social services to the elderly, mainly addressing the nutrition aspects related to this end users group. The company is structured in three different branches: SOCISER (assisting to the elderly with formal carers at their home and at old people’s home; providing training services and promoting dynamic and social activities among the elderly), CULINARIA (which manages the services related to the meals preparation according to the diets recommended to each person) and XEROCATERING (which is responsible for the feeding services specialised in the older adults sector). This structure enables the company to provide an agile, flexible and specialised service to the elderly, according to their needs, which has been the company main aim for more than 20 years.
As an example, one of the company main projects is called “Xantar na casa” (“Eat at Home”) working in close relation with the Xunta de Galicia (the government of the region) and providing an integral feeding services for the elderly living alone at home, in care homes or living with some of their relatives (as informal carers). Taking into account only this project the company is providing feeding services to a group of around 2000 people spread over towns and rural areas in Galicia.
