OUR KITCHEN IS THE HEART OF OUR HOME.
We believe that meals must be an enjoyable part of everyday life so we use only the best, freshest ingredients to create delicious restaurant quality food that is varied and can be personalised depending on your favourite dishes. With our policy of “protected mealtimes”, residents are not interrupted by staff during a meal to take medicines – staff will instead most probably sit down and share a meal with you.
