Living at our centres
Food and Drinks
With our on-site chefs we promote a wide and varied menu which can be adapted to the individual’s requirements.
Residents are encouraged to take their meals in communal dining areas to promote the social aspects of eating which you would have at home.
Equally, if a resident wishes to take their meal in their room this can be accommodated.
Lunch is normally served between 12:45pm and 2pm and the evening meal is served between 5.15pm and 6.30pm.
A range of hot and cold drinks are available at any time for no extra charge. Snacks can be made available upon request and a further selection of snacks, sweets and cold drinks can be purchased via the on-site tuck shop.
We provide a therapy kitchen to assist residents in practising meal preparation tasks.
Cleaning & Laundry
The centres have a team of housekeeping staff who are responsible for maintaining the cleanliness of the home. Residents are welcome to contribute to cleaning their own room if they would like to do so. Flat linen such as sheets, duvet covers and towels are provided by the home and laundered externally. Our internal laundry service, provided on site, is available for residents labelled named clothing and personal items.
It should be noted that as part of our infection control procedures, any items soiled with bodily fluids or matter will be laundered at high temperatures. This may not be suitable for delicate items. Residents (and relatives) are advised to take this into account when choosing the items they bring in and use.
Personal items of furniture or furnishings are welcome within the residents own room to make it as homely as is possible, please discuss arrangements with your key worker.
