Nutrition

 

Our excellent chef and kitchen team offer nutritionally-balanced, freshly prepared meals. The menu changes on a four-weekly cycle and we try to accommodate different tastes and diets as far as possible.

Dining

Residents can choose where to eat and some prefer the privacy of their own room. We encourage socialising, and many people enjoy eating together in the dining room.

Nutrition is more than just about the food; our goal is also about making mealtimes a social gathering. 

Weight management

As we get older we may eat less. Making food interesting, nutritious and tempting for those who need to put on some weight after a spell of being unwell or just need to maintain a healthy diet is an essential part of our care programme.

Our in-house chef is responsible for providing appetising meals tailored for our residents. 

Varied menu

Our menu is varied and includes hot and cold meals, vegetarian options and the ever-popular puddings.

At our lunch and dinner sittings, we have a choice of two hot meals or if residents are looking for something a bit lighter, there is always the option to have a smaller snack from our smaller plate or snack menu. 

We like to make a cake when a resident is celebrating a birthday, and often link meals to special events in the calendar such as Burns Night. There is plenty of flexibility if a resident has particular likes or dislikes but our chef’s superb home baking rarely goes unappreciated (also much appreciated by visitors!).

What our residents and their families say

  • Thank you so much for the care given to my parents. I could not have wished for a better home for them in their final months. Everyone has a smile and a kind word, and nothing is too much trouble. With my heart-felt thanks and best wishes to you all.

    Patricia, daughter

  • Thanks for all you did for mum in the months she was in Ashley Court. She found everyone very kind and helpful, as did I.

    Lucy, Joanne and Andre, children

  • People who visited commented as to how clean, bright and welcoming the home is. They also offered praise regarding staff, who they felt were far more professional when compared with their experiences elsewhere.

    In my opinion the service provided by Ashley Court is second to none.

    Daughter

  • The personal attention offered by staff was exemplary and ensured that my mother adjusted quickly to her new environment at a particularly difficult time in her life. The stress and confusion, which had arrived with her from hospital, disappeared, and she was then able to enjoy her last few months in an atmosphere of familiarity and security.

    Son

  • Although we worried frequently that we would be in your way when we spent so much time with dad, or that you would become fed up with all our queries and questions, you always made us welcome and were friendly and helpful. We are especially grateful for the faultless care you all provided, thank you.

    Elizabeth and Diana, daughters
