Mealtimes are a very important part of the day. Here at Kingswood Court, we always want to ensure that everyone receives nutritionally balanced, tasty food and really enjoys their meals.
Our qualified and experienced Chef, Jeff, provides a great variety of appetising and well-presented home-cooked meals, using fresh ingredients. Our fruit, vegetables and meat are all locally sourced. The residents are invited to help plan the menu; after all it is their home. It encompasses a blend of traditional cooking with a few modern and ethnic dishes too. We are always happy to cater for special diets and personal preferences, and love nothing more than celebrating birthdays and other special occasions. Family parties can always be arranged. When weather permits, we enjoy a barbeque or buffet in the garden where staff, residents and their guests gather to enjoy a tasty social event.
For breakfast, residents have a choice of fruit, cereal, toast or a cooked breakfast, served with tea or coffee and fruit juice. At lunchtime, there’s a three course meal with a choice of two hot dishes daily. And a light supper is served every evening. Throughout the day snacks and hot drinks are available, with home-baked cakes in the afternoon. Each Friday, residents enjoy a glass of sherry, and wine is available during the weekends. Most of our residents choose to eat their meals in the welcoming dining room, although for those who prefer to eat in their own room we’re happy to accommodate this. And if anyone needs assistance with eating, we’ll gladly help.

- My husband had been suffering cerebral vascular disease for more than 12 years. His mobility decreased until he could no longer walk. I had carers in to wash and dress him for 6 years. As he started to suffer from vascular dementia he had to go into a nursing home. The staff were so kind and positive at all times both to my husband and to me when I visited. He lived there for 9 months becoming weaker month by month until he died, receiving excellent palliative care.
