Meals

We think that mealtimes are a very important part of the day.

Not only are they important to provide a well-balanced diet to support health and well-being, mealtimes are for many people a social occasion.

We offer a choice of food at every mealtime and, if a person has a particular favourite, we will add it to our 'shopping list'.

We can cater for special diets.

Residents can choose where they would like to eat their meals, e.g. in the dining room, the communal lounge, their own room etc.

We use the Apetito system for lunch and some of the dinner menus. We operate a four-weekly cycle menu, which we constantly review in light of residents’ preferences. The range of meals provided covers all dietary needs including puréed, soft, diabetic, vegan, dairy free and gluten free and they meet the National Association of Care Catering (NACC) standards for nutrition. Meals are supplied fully prepared and frozen in foil trays. For more information about Apetito meals, please visit: www.apetito.co.uk
