S is the sole carer for his wife and he is not too well, suffering from mental health and domestic abuse. He has no suitable clothes to wear and, on a daily basis, wears clothes which have large holes in and are unkempt. Mostly due to Covid, and weight gain, his current clothes are of ill fitting. This, and the impact of the fuel cost rises, have had an impact on both himself and his wife's mental health. Neither of them are eating properly, due to the rising debts they are experiencing.
