The Importance Of Meal Times

Good food appeals to all our senses. A favourite meal that evokes a treasured memory will feed more than just the body, that’s why listening to our residents’ culinary preferences is about more than just addressing dietary need; it’s also about nourishing the soul.
In keeping with our core value of bespoke care, our head chef makes certain that every resident receives the level of individual attention needed to become familiar with their particular preferences and dietary requirements, so every mealtime is one to look forward to.

We always want our residents to have the best, that’s why our meals contain locally sourced ingredients of the highest provenance and are cooked to exacting standards. Attention is paid to portion sizes; light starters are on offer, and a variety of supper choices are also available as room service.

In addition to our regular menus, special occasions or seasonal celebrations elicit a change in the dining experience when we offer alternative or themed options; for instance at Christmas lunch or to mark a national event. We will also occasionally avail of a local supplier to provide freshly prepared fish and chips for our popular traditional fish supper evenings.

All food, drinks and refreshments are included in the full board rate. And should anyone wish to invite a friend or relative to sample our delicious home-cooking, we are happy to welcome them for lunch or supper, at a nominal fee.

Afternoon Tea, All day snacks, Breakfast, Dinner, Lunch.

Activities Are So Important

Relaxed and unforced, a rich and varied programme of activities, aimed at stimulating both mind and body, offers residents the opportunity to stay active and entertained, whilst building new friendships or simply having fun!

Amongst the regular activities on offer are film and documentary screenings, live entertainment, and ‘knit and natter’ afternoons. Flower arranging, art classes, and board games are also popular; whilst baking, gardening and craft sessions are a chance to be ‘hands on’ and get really involved.

But whether residents choose to indulge in all the activities on offer or none at all, everyone feels part of an indefinable sense of ‘community’ – one that exists where no-one is excluded, and a helping hand or friendly face is never far away. There are visits to places of interest or trips to cafés for afternoon tea, and we often welcome local community groups to join us in our beautiful grounds for annual events such as Bonfire Night, a Christmas fair, or charity luncheons on the lawn.

During seasonal highlights, or landmark occasions such as a royal wedding, Geoghegan family members are often to be found joining staff, residents and visitors alike in celebration.

Both residents and their relatives come to appreciate those ‘extra touches’ that typify the desire to provide a nurturing and fulfilling environment for all, and are part of what makes life at The Old Rectory so special.
