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

  • Many thanks for looking after mum. A special thank you to everyone up in Craig Suite for their very professional nursing care over the past two years. Such a loving, homely atmosphere and I was always made very welcome.

    Luisa, daughter

  • Thank you so much for all of the kindness and care you showed my mum. You were a blessing to her and me, and it was good to have her nearer.

    Shiona, daughter

  • There is always a nice atmosphere in the home and we know Dad was very happy. You have given us some lovely memories, of happy times we shared with Dad – the garden party and the street party being two of them.

    We would especially like to thank the lovely staff in Craig Suite, who looked after Dad at all times with good humour, kindness, respect and obvious affection. Dad was certainly very fond of them all too. We would like to mention every one of them because each one contributed their own special talent to his care, especially in his final days, and made sure that he died peacefully and comfortably.

    We are also grateful for the support which we received during this difficult time.

    Mary and Anne, daughters

  • Thank you for the sensitive way you looked after mum. Your kind care and friendship gave her the security to feel safe and comfortable in her last days. Also, thanks for looking after us when we visited from Cheshire, and in the difficult time after she died.

    Stewart and Janice, daughter and son-in-law

  • How very grateful we are to you for looking after our dear mother, so caringly over the last three years of her life. It was a joy to see her so very happy and secure in your company. In her time with you she became free from the woes that had previously beset her during her failing years.

    You do the most important of jobs, balancing professionalism with compassion. Your warm and respectful regard for those in your care does you great credit.

    Mary, daughter

  • I could not have wished for mum to spend her last weeks of life in safer, friendlier hands. She was just beginning to settle well and liked the staff immensely – she was just too ill to fully appreciate all you had to offer. The speed of her death took us a little by surprise.

    Thank you once again for the care and kindness shown to her. I would have no hesitation in recommending Fidra House to anyone.

    Sue, daughter
