Food for Thought Meeting
The kitchen team regularly meet with residents to talk through their ideas and preferences
At Grace Care Centre, we strive to put our residents at the heart of everything we do. Whether it’s developing an engaging activity programme, providing person-centred care or the seasonal menus we offer throughout the home.
With this in mind, our kitchen team take the time to meet with residents when they first move into the home to talk through their likes, dislikes and preferences. We are also aware that these preferences can change over time and therefore our fortnightly ‘Food for Thought’ meetings give residents an opportunity to provide their feedback.
In addition, residents are reguarly asked if there are any special events coming that they would like the team to cater for. These include birthdays, anniversaries or loved ones coming to visit.
During the ‘Food for Thought’ meeting this week, our residents put forward their thoughts on the current menu and changes they would like to see implemented. Our Head Chef, Raz, explained other planned changes in line with the changing of seasons. He also brought along a few samples for residents to try which helped to make decisions on other changes to the menu. Finally, our residents talked through some of their favourite meals and treats which Raz will look to add into the menu moving forward.
Head Chef at Grace Care Centre, Raz, said: “I have always taken a deep interest in providing the best meal experience possible. Combining everyone’s thoughts and preferences together will help me and my team to deliver our high standards of the dining experience. With these added personal touches, residents will be able to see the changes they have inputted into. This is something we will look to continue with moving forward.”
