Personalisation and choice

Personalisation and choice

Every aspect of living in a Care UK care home is tailored to the individual’s needs and preferences, including food and dining.

Residents in our care homes tell us what they’d like to see on the menu, through regular resident meetings. Thanks to resident feedback, some homes offer two roast dinners a week, pie nights, curry nights and ‘fish and chips on laps’. No two homes offer the same menus.

All about the individual

There’s always a choice of menu options at each meal, with at least two choices of main course.

We understand that, as a person ages, their appetite doesn’t always conform to the clock. So, although main meals are served at certain times, residents can always eat at a time that better suits them.

An expert approach

Your loved one’s preferences and any dietary needs are noted in their care plan and this is updated as they change. Many residents need to have a specialist diet – either for medical or religious/cultural reasons. Our chefs have the culinary expertise to produce tempting, nutritious and delicious options, whatever your loved one’s needs.

We offer a full range of soft food options for people who have dysphagia, or difficulty in swallowing. Everything is made with the same nutritional values but served in a soft, easy-to-eat form with the same visual appeal.

Nationally recognised expertise

We employ some of the best chefs in the business. In 2016 two of our chefs got to the national finals of an industry recognised competition. Find out more on our catering teams page.
