The Importance Of Meal Times

Whether it’s a wholesome Sunday roast or a more exotic gourmet dish, our Chefs make sure every meal is nutritionally balanced and made from fresh local ingredients. All our menus offer choices and we will supplement these with alternatives for those who wish for something different. Alongside home-made meals, a range of snacks are available for the people living in our homes. Alongside home-made meals, a range of snacks are also freshly baked for the people living in our homes.

Our dining experience

We offer a dining experience that enables residents to maintain their independence and dine with dignity. Our teams make sure our residents have choices that best suit them. We offer plated meal choices, and if one-to-one support is required then a carer will sit with the resident to assist them to enjoy their meal at their own pace.

Whilst residents may choose to dine in their own room, we do encourage residents to eat together in our charming dining areas so they can make the most of this valuable social time. We also welcome relatives to join their loved ones for meal time too!

As part of the Lifestyle Pioneer project, we welcome residents who wish to play a part in preparing for meals to take a leading role. Whether that’s laying the table for lunch or as a resident Food Critic, they are welcome and encouraged to continue to do the things that bring them the most enjoyment.

Academy

Westgate Healthcare has partnered with Academy to offer a dynamic, fresh and vibrant catering service within our care homes. Serving nutritious, well-balanced and appropriate food is all part of the care that is provided within the home, and the Atalian Servest team provide a focused, bespoke, responsive and above all flexible catering service to our residents.

Activities Are So Important

We think life is to be loved. Moving into residential care shouldn’t change that.

Of course, everyone has different interests, tastes and preferences. You’ll be pleased to know that because we provide maximum choice and variety, everyone who comes to live with us can have the lifestyle they prefer.

And then there’s our entertainment team. They work tirelessly and continuously to create a stimulating timetable of individual and group activities. Everything – of course – is optional, but we encourage involvement wherever it’s appropriate and beneficial.

We welcome suggestions and feedback from our residents and their families. If we can accommodate it, we make it happen.

Lifestyle Pioneer

Westgate Healthcare’s unique ‘Lifestyle Pioneer’ programme was created to empower the communities within our care homes by encouraging residents to embrace their passions and to take the lead in evolving their lifestyles by continuing to do the things that are special to them.

Each of the homes across the Westgate group will be empowering their residents to join the new Lifestyle Pioneer programme, whether they choose to become a Resident Gardener, Day Lounge Monitor, Event Pioneer or Food Critic – the roles are limitless!

Chatterbox

Chatterbox is unique to Westgate Healthcare and is all about building meaningful relationships with our residents. The idea of Chatterbox is that at each staff handover, every member of our team will take a card from the box and ask their residents a question.

Encouraging conversations that are generated by a simple question helps us to get to know our residents, including what they like and dislike, their favourite memories, and their job prior to retirement.

About Me

The ‘About Me’ booklets offer our residents with an opportunity to share their hobbies and interests with the teams to build meaningful relationships. Our teams use the booklets to create activities and events that suit the hobbies and interests of each of our residents, and they make sure every resident is empowered to do the things they enjoy most. The booklets can be found in each of the residents’ rooms to ensure they are easily accessible.
