The Importance Of Meal Times

In our latest CQC report, residents and relatives commented that ‘the cooks are brilliant’, and praised the talents of our chef-led catering team.

The Galsworthy House catering team is committed to learning about your loved one’s food preferences and dietary needs so they can tailor the menus accordingly. We happily cater for different dietary requirements, whether your loved one needs a soft diet or a fortified one. We use the latest catering technologies to ensure that texture-modified foods look and taste appealing, and our chef works closely with the clinical and care teams to keep updated with residents’ changing nutritional needs.

We ensure meal times are a relaxed, enjoyable experience. Friends get together to chat about their day in a social setting. We will support your loved one to eat independently, but will always provide one-to-one support if it’s needed.

Our dining rooms are arranged in a restaurant-style, with small tables beautifully laid with crisp linen and glassware. However, your loved one is welcome to eat in their room if they prefer.

We understand that appetites can vary in later life, so we will make snacks and drinks for them at any time.
