We have a 5 star hygiene rated kitchen which offers our residents a range of meal plans based on their specific dietary requirements. These include reduced sugar meals for diabetics, low-calorie meals for weight loss, fortified menus for those who need to gain weight, meals based on religious requirements (including halal and kosher) and foods for those unable to chew.
