Here at Fidra House, our excellent in-house chef and kitchen team offer nutritionally-balanced, freshly prepared meals. We provide appetising meals tailored for our residents and try to accommodate different tastes and diets as far as possible.
Nutrition is more than just about the food and therefore our goal is also about making mealtimes a social gathering. Residents can however choose where to eat and some prefer the privacy of their own room, whilst others enjoy eating together in the dining room, with its windows looking out onto the garden.
As we get older we may eat less and therefore it is the responsibility of the Chef and team to make food interesting, nutritious and tempting. This is especially important for those who need to put on some weight after a spell of being unwell. Maintaining a healthy diet is an essential part of our care programme.
Our menu is varied and changes on a four-weekly cycle with hot and cold meals, vegetarian options and ever-popular puddings.
There is a choice of two hot meals at our lunch and dinner sittings and, for those residents looking for a lighter bite, there is always the option to have a smaller snack from our smaller plate or snack menu.
We like to bake a cake when a resident is celebrating a birthday or event, and often link meals to special events in the calendar such as Burns Night or Easter. There is plenty of flexibility if a resident has a particular like or dislike but our chef’s superb home baking rarely goes unappreciated (also much appreciated by visitors).
The rooms are always clean and fresh. Also, the care that goes into each resident looking so well looked after – hair lovely, well-dressed and cared for. Every visit, I leave with a smile.

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.

Before going to Fidra, she lived on her own from visiting Carers but was obviously depressed. Fidra care and staff have brought her back to life again.
