We promote individual wellbeing through positive and enjoyable dining experience in pleasant settings and support our customers to eat and drink so they are well-hydrated and well-nourished.
All our homes offer freshly cooked, appetising and nutritionally balanced meals with a different seasonal choice available every day. Our professional chefs use fresh ingredients to prepare a range of delicious, wholesome meals in our care home kitchens to be enjoyed throughout the day. Our carehome catering teams consult with residents on a regular basis to ensure we understand the nutritional requirements and food preferences.
Our chefs carefully plan four-weekly menu cycles, which are changed regularly, to ensure each resident enjoys a variety of delicious dishes every day of the week. The preferences of the residents are always taken into account, which means classic meals often feature alongside traditional regionalcuisine on our menus.
