Borough Care residents have welcomed the changes to the food on offer at meal times since the service was brought back in–house earlier this year. Borough Care is the largest not-for-profit provider of care for older people in Stockport and has eleven homes in the area.
As part of Borough Care’s commitment to ensuring its residents eat healthily, the company appointed apetito as its catering partner six months ago. apetito is the leading producer and supplier of meals for the health and social care sectors.
Commenting on the new meal service, Mark Dale, Catering & Hospitality Manager at Borough Care, says: “The feedback from residents on the new meals has been really positive. Staff have also embraced the changes, as they can see the difference it has made to residents’ eating habits. We have standardised the food choices, along with raising the quality of what’s on offer throughout our homes. We’ve also introduced a great nutritional tool, which can track a resident’s food consumption, enabling us to make sure people are receiving the correct nutrients in their diet. Dishes that have proved particularly popular include; cottage pie, roast beef dinners, lasagne and chicken korma, along with all the desserts.”
As Christmas approaches, residents are looking forward to enjoying a number of festive meals. In addition to the traditional Christmas Day lunch of turkey and all the trimmings, Borough Care is hosting festive buffets for residents and their families throughout the festive period.
