Our catering team are passionate about creating delicious, healthy and nutritious meals for the people under our care. Before anyone moves in, we will create them a food passport, which helps the chef to come up with meals that will offer the person everything they need to remain fit and healthy.
From varied breakfast spreads to hot and cold lunches and sit-down dinners in the evening, we go out of our way to ensure each person receives three freshly prepared meals a day. If a person doesn’t like the look of the day’s menu, our chef will be more than happy to cook them anything that they fancy eating.
We work with dieticians and nutritionists to provide the people who lives at Branksome Park Care Centre with food that will benefit their health to the maximum effect. All food is locally sourced and cooked from fresh, so food retains its nutritional value.
