Care and Nutrition
As part of our service, we provide 3 meals a day for all residents, which are all prepared on-site. Alternatives are offered as we are aware that not everyone will always want the same thing.
At Hestia Care, we recognize the importance of meal times as part of a resident’s lifestyle and nutrition as part of any care package. Therefore, we make a specific effort to incorporate personal preferences and special dietary requirements into each meal.
With suitable notice, we are happy to provide meals for relatives of our residents. We also look for ways to improve our service and welcome feedback on the dining room experience we provide.
