FOOD FOR THOUGHT
The Home has two on-site cooks and we always aim to provide very nourishing food, ‘home cooked’ whenever possible. There is a two week rotating menu which is changed throughout the year and the daily menu is displayed in the dining room.
Special diets, favourite dishes, religious and cultural diets are catered for. If you have any special dietary needs, do please let the senior on duty who will arrange for the cook to know. If there is something you do not like or cannot eat, for example chicken, the kitchen will be happy to produce an alternative for you. The cooks will also make a birthday cake if you wish to celebrate your birthday and also provide an afternoon tea party. Meal times are normally a social activity enjoyed in the dining room but should you prefer, due to illness or simply for a change, your meals can be served in your room. Hot and cold drinks and snacks are also available throughout the day and night – just ring and ask. Fortified smoothies can be made for residents that need help to maintain a healthy weight or to put on weight and likewise the cook can prepare any low fat meals. We have an environmental food rating of 5, (EHO Rating)
