Dining is a hugely important factor in many lives, it is more than simply sustenance. Culturally, both food and dining are at the core of our most joyous experiences in life; weddings, festivals, birthdays and holidays to name just a few.

We encourage our residents to invite their loved ones into the home for lunch, dinner and even breakfast so that meal times offer the same opportunities for socialising as they would’ve done throughout each individual’s life.

What is unique about the dining experience we offer here is ‘choice’, which extends beyond simply WHAT you wish to eat, it includes WHERE, WHEN and WHO WITH. Not only do our residents have a superb choice of meals each day but they have the freedom to eat them wherever they like, whenever they like, and with whomever they choose.

We often incorporate food into our activities, providing buffets at parties and BBQs during summer garden parties. We have even hosted ‘Come dine with me’ style evenings in which favourite meals are pitted against one another, diners then voting for their favourite.

Our catering staff are highly skilled and in addition to their knowledge within hospitality they are subject to our programme of care related training, this gives them a broad understanding of the often complex needs of our residents. Our dining team cater for a diverse range of dietary requirements and have experience in tailoring menus to suit every individual’s specific needs.
