5 Food Hygiene

Food

Food and mealtimes should be a key part of a resident's life in a care home, and we at Avon Manor take great pride in our catering both in respect of the nutritional value of the food and its presentation.

The menus are varied, taking into consideration the dietary requirements and individual likes and dislikes of our residents, and we ensure that residents are given every assistance where eating is difficult for them.

Fresh vegetables, meat and fish are delivered by local suppliers. To save confusion and help residents make correct selections the menus are displayed with pictures and words.

Meals are normally taken in our comfortable dining room but may be taken in residents rooms if they wish.

Residents' weights are recorded on a regular basis and food and drink intake is monitored.
