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.
Residents can choose where to eat and we have a dining room and pantry in each of the six suites. Some residents may prefer the privacy of their own room however we do encourage socialising, and many people may 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.
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.
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 would like to make a cake when a resident is celebrating a birthday, and can also 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.
