Food And Nutrition

Food and drink are an important part in all our lives, and a particularly enjoyable experience at FirstCare care homes.

Our teams of experienced chefs ensure every meal is not only delicious but reflects each individual’s likes, dislikes and dietary needs.

Dietary requirements

Whether it’s a wholesome shepherd’s pie or a more exotic gourmet delight, our policy is to make sure every meal is nutritionally balanced and made from the best and freshest local ingredients. All our menus offer choices of main meals, and we will supplement these with alternatives for people who want something different.

Alongside home-made meals, a range of snacks is available each day for the people living in our homes to enjoy.

For residents that have difficulties in swallowing we modify the menu of the day so that is it a soft, palatable dish.  To support our chefs in producing these dishes, our hospitality and catering manager organises theory and practical workshops.  

Our practical workshops involve all chefs learning about dysphagia and producing these modified menus. The chefs prepare fork mashable and thick puree meals to the correct consistency, taste and presentation; and then ensure all modified menus served are presented correctly for our residents.
