Food, Dining & Nutritional Therapy

We understand the importance of a healthy, nutritionally balanced diet. Food and nutrition play an integral part in our over health – particulary in our later years.

Enjoying what you eat is very important

Our chefs work hard at developing tasty, varied menus and regularly consult with our residents to find out about their favourite dishes. We believe that although it is very important to eat a balanced diet – so is enjoying what you eat every day.

Mealtimes within Nellsar Care Homes are an important event. We offer a varied, healthy and plentiful menu that is very popular with residents. Our qualified head chefs are committed to preparing fresh, home-cooked food with the emphasis on using local ingredients, and we are very happy to cater for special dietary requirements. As well as breakfast, lunch and dinner, snacks and refreshments are available throughout the day including morning coffee and afternoon tea with freshly baked cakes.

Mealtimes also offer a regular opportunity for socialising; our Homes provide pleasant and spacious dining rooms and residents are able to vary their seating arrangements and dine with different people as they choose. If preferred, room service can be provided and assistance is always available for those who are less able.
