Meet the team
A talented chef and kitchen team prepare tasty, home-cooked meals. The freshly prepared, delicious dishes are carefully balanced to get the best nutritional value and cater for individual dietary requirements and preferences. Seasonal produce is chosen whenever possible and of course, relatives and friends are always welcome to join.
The menus change daily, and the kettle is always on, so hot drinks are available throughout the day.
Each of the four households have their own personal kitchen-dining room where residents u can take their meals if they wish. Residents are also encouraged to help prepare their own food, and to make snacks.
Whether it’s wet or dry outside, we at OSJCT feel that activities are essential in providing the best caring environment to live in.
