Food & dining
Across all our homes we use great ingredients and serve freshly prepared nutritionally balanced meals
Our chef teams use great ingredients to provide freshly prepared nutritionally balanced meals, based on regularly changing, seasonal menus. We make mealtimes an occasion for our residents, enabling them to enjoy their food in welcoming surroundings and catered for by our care teams. Residents always have a choice of options to choose from at all meal times and can opt for something different if they change their mind when the food arrives.
We make sure our residents start the day right with a filling breakfast including cereals, fruit, toast and porridge plus a daily changing choice of hot options.
Mid-morning tea service is followed by lunch – the main meal of the day in our homes – enabling residents to dine together in a restaurant-style environment and providing a choice of hot meals as well as the option of soup or a sandwich for those that don’t want something quite as filling. Lunch is rounded off with delicious desserts all prepared on-site by our chef teams.
And then it’s tea time with mouth-watering freshly baked cakes that our residents and team members enjoy together, making afternoon tea an activity in itself. Lighter meal options are provided in the evening and fresh fruit and snacks are available throughout the day to keep resident’s nourished, energised and satisfied.
To reduce the footprint of our food, we decided to create seasonal menus highlighting the fruit and vegetables available during that season. We also tailor each menu depending on the taste of our residents so we can help them enjoy their meals by providing them with their favourite meals.
