The team at Daleside Nursing Home, in Birkenhead, which is part of the We Care Group,
is celebrating following a recent inspection from the Food Standard Agency which has
awarded them with a ‘Five Star Food Hygiene Rating’.
A score of zero to five, food hygiene ratings are given to food handling businesses,
which includes care homes, after an inspection has assessed how well they comply with
food safety laws.

safety, to be very good within the home. They also found the cleanliness and condition
of the facilities and building to be good. As a result, the home has received the highest
rating of ‘Five Stars’ rating them overall as ‘Very Good’
During the visit the inspector recognised the improvements made to the kitchen saying
“The new kitchen is a massive improvement and has improved food safety.”
The team works incredibly hard to provide residents with a wonderful varied menu,
with all meals prepared with fresh, locally sourced, seasonal produce and based on the
individual tastes and dietary needs of the people we support. It prides itself on its
varied menu which will satisfy even those with the smallest of appetites; from breakfast
through to dinner, residents can discover something different with fresh flavours and
lovely, well-presented meals, creating new and exciting dishes for everyone to enjoy, as
well as freshly baked cakes for afternoon teas.

Star Rating from Food Standards Agency, which is testament to the hard work of all the
team in ensuring that we are delivering good quality nutritional food to our residents.”

new kitchen which had been installed since the last inspection resulting in significant
improvements to food safety.”
