Care Home Dining
At Summerfield, we firmly believe that people ought to eat the food they enjoy. A dietician might pull their hair our but we continue to adhere to the view that the enjoyment of food takes preference over healthy eating though hopefully the two things are not always in opposition.
We give food a very high priority. The main reason is, that it is one pleasure we can all enjoy, and secondly we have found that older people, especially when alone, just can't be bothered to prepare food for themselves so eating an appetising range of food is a vital aspect of feeling better.
All meals are prepared in the modern kitchen using fresh ingredients. Special diets are catered for and residents suggestions regarding the variety of the menus are encouraged.
Meals may be taken our elegant dining room, or in the residents own room if preferred. We at Summerfield are exceedingly flexible and are more than happy to accommodate your routine. You may choose to continue your routine or adapt to life within our home.
BELOW IS A TYPICAL DAILY MENU
Lunch: - (Wine is also available on request)
The menus are varied on a daily basis and of course are different during the summer and winter periods.
Most meats and vegetables are locally and organically sourced and all of the eggs we use are free range. We make all our own cakes, puddings and pastries and have now added freshly made hot soups, served with oven baked rolls, all of which are homemade on the premises.
For prospective residents, we invite them and their relatives to come and have lunch with us and sample our wonderful cuisine.
