Our team of chefs prepare a variety of delicious and nutritious home cooked meals. Ingredients come from local suppliers and meals are freshly prepared daily. All special diets be it dietary allergies, recommended food textures, religious or cultural needs, all can be accommodated and our chefs who meet with every new resident in order to understand their likes, dislikes and dietary requirements. We have recently introduced a new varied menu which we hope will appeal to everyone which was designed by our residents and is updated reguarly to meet the needs and preferences of those in our service. Our chefs are inspired by residents' feedback which is collected every day. There’s alternative menu choices at every mealtime if you want something different and snacks can be ordered throughout the day and night.
For residents who have difficulties in swallowing we modify the menu so that it is provided in the recommended texture. To support our chefs in producing these dishes, we provide accredited training about dysphagia. The chefs prepare meals to the correct consistency, and ensure taste and presentation is maintained. The senior carers will ensure all modified menus are prepared and served in line with our personalised diet and nutrition assessment and care plans.
All our food is prepared in a safe, hygienic environment. Grange-Lea is proud to maintain and display our Food Agency 5 Star food hygiene rating.
See below for samples of our menu:
