Here at The Porterbrook Care Home we understand the importance of living a happy, fulfilled life and the role that a wonderful dining experience plays within that. Our in-house chef and his team strive to provide home-cooked meals that are varied and create delicious menus based on personal preferences. Meals can be delivered to residents’ rooms to enjoy alone or if they prefer, in one of our dining areas alongside their fellow residents.
Food has a considerably bigger impact on our health as we become older, and we recognise that eating a nutritious meal has a significant effect on our overall health and wellbeing. That understanding ensures our team provides residents with a pleasant dining experience, in a calm atmosphere provided by the spacious and tastefully appointed dining facilities.
