Why Food is so Important at HMT St. Hughs?

Food and mealtimes are important to everyone, throughout our lives. When you live in a care home, diet – as well as the ritual of eating – becomes even more relevant. As the body gets older, it is important that we have the right nutrition to keep our energy levels up and help our body to function. Plus, good food generally makes us feel happy, healthy and satisfied.

That’s why we treat food as more than a daily chore. We employ a qualified chef to devise a tasty and nutritious menu. All residents get a choice at each mealtime of two hot meals, two cold meals and snacks. Everyone gets asked on a daily basis to make their choice.

Of course, it goes without saying that all food is cooked from fresh daily. Our kitchens are immaculate. Our staff well trained.

We are well aware of food allergies and intolerance and make allowances for these in our menus. Chef makes sure she has regular contact with residents and relatives to ensure that there is regular feedback and any concerns are picked up early. Food served at Marie Louse House is often complimented and rarely complained about. However, if this happens the complaint is addressed immediately.

Marie Louise House offers a wide choice of meals to meet individual tastes and nutritional needs. Special diets can also be catered for. Tea, coffee and other hot drinks are served and are available 24 hours a day.
