Dining with us
The eating experience is important to every one of us. Therefore, we discuss likes and dislikes with residents on a regular basis and formulate menus, with available pictures. Our meals are prepared with fresh vegetables daily, with three choices of a main meal and dessert and a night time snack menu. We make sure that snacks and drinks are always available throughout the 24 hours.
Our staff join in as necessary, and help assist with eating, to promote mimicking of movement. Birthdays and key events are celebrated by the Home, and parties are always encouraged, inclusive of friends within and out of the home.
Enjoyment of good wholesome meals is of paramount importance to us as this is crucial to everyone’s health and well-being. At Southern Healthcare guests and families are encouraged to come and join residents in relaxing surroundings of their choice.
All meat and vegetables are locally sourced with some vegetables even coming from our own gardens. Vegetarian options are available daily. Wine, beers and other tipples are served along with a three-course meal if wished for. Cooked breakfasts, light lunches or evening snacks can all be catered for, dependent on tastes and requirements. Fruit is served daily, along with nutritious liquid snacks and home-made cakes and biscuits. If an evening meal is preferred, we will make sure that this continues. If slightly more individual tastes or diets are needed, our chef will gladly talk this over with the resident, to make sure that they feel included in any decisions or needs they may have.
