We recognise meal times play an important part in the social life of the home. We provide a welcoming environment in the light and airy dining room on the ground floor and ensure that meals are unhurried occasions, providing opportunities for social interaction as well as nourishment. Residents enjoy the delicious home cooked cuisine using locally sourced produce wherever possible.
We encourage residents to choose where they sit in the dining room and meals can be served in residents’ own rooms, if desired. Care staff are available to provide discreet, sensitive and individual help with eating and drinking for those needing it.
The main meal is prepared at lunchtime with a choice of hot and cold food. A hearty breakfast selection and an evening snack meal are also provided. Residents are served afternoon tea and a selection of home baked cakes, biscuits, yogurt/fromage frais, fresh fruits and always an alternative cold snack.
A pictorial 24-hour snack menu is displayed in all communal areas along with fresh water, juice, fruits, crisps, biscuits and other goodies (accessible and within reach of residents). Menus are regularly changed and we cater for special diets including diabetic and vegetarian.
