Mealtimes represent an important social occasion and we work to ensure they are as enjoyable as possible, unhurried and relaxed with everyone given plenty of time to eat and enjoy their meal, while chatting and socialising with other residents.
We make a point of celebrating birthdays and special occasions, as well as celebrating and dressing up for national festivities and events such as St George’s Day, Mother’s Day and Burns Night
