Meal Times/Menu

Food and meal times are often considered to be among the most important elements that go towards achieving a good quality of life, and every effort is made to ensure that meals are nutritional, well balanced and attractively presented. A choice of menu is offered each day and Service users are encouraged to enjoy their meals in a location of their choice, i.e. the dining areas or in their own rooms.

Breakfast 8.00 – 9.45am Continental or Cooked Breakfast is available
Mid-Morning Snack 11.00am Tea/Coffee/Milk or a selection of juices are available with biscuits as required
Lunch 12.00 – 1.30pm 2 Course Meal, Hot or Cold snack, Sandwiches or Salad as required.  (This is chosen by the Service user the day before.)
Mid-Afternoon Snack 3.00pm Tea/Coffee/Milk or a selection of juices are available with home-made cake or biscuits as required
Evening Meal 4.45 – 6.00pm Hot or Cold Meal, Snack, Sandwiches or Salads as required (This is also chosen by the Service user the day before.)
Supper 8.00pm Onwards Choice of Hot Milky Drink, Tea, Coffee, Fruit Juices, Toast, Preserves, Tea-Cakes, homemade cakes or biscuits as required.

Hot and cold drinks are available at any time of the day for Service users/Relatives, and fresh fruit is always available for Service users.

Any cultural, religious or personal preferences, i.e. vegetarian, will be catered for following an assessment of the Service users needs on admission. Special dietary needs (e.g. diabetics) are catered for as part of the service to the Service users.

For Service users who have a taste for exotic dishes (e.g. caviar) a nominal additional charge will be made, as this service will be exclusive to the Service user.

Menus are reviewed and discussed on a three monthly basis and theme days, birthdays and special occasions are built in to the menu cycle.
