National Association of Care Catering Awards 2019 

WINNER Care Establishment of the Year – Ferndown Manor

With their commitment to ensuring residents have dignity, choice and great food, judges noted that the team at Ferndown Manor are quick to make menu developments. Head Chef, Scott Moore, introduces tasting menus at mealtimes, inviting residents to try new dishes then monitors what’s popular and adapts the menu accordingly.

On talking about the award win, Scott said: “Myself and the team are over the moon to have won this award. It was wonderful to be considered, let alone to win! We love making sure the residents at Ferndown Manor have a delicious and varied menu to choose from every day, so they can continue to live a fulfilling life.”

Further recognition

Care UK’s Hospitality Team was also shortlisted in the 2019 Awards. The team have invested heavily in equipment, training and excellent produce to ensure that residents have food that not only looks and tastes as one would expect from fine dining, but that also has the nutritional content to enhance their health and wellbeing.
