At Asher Care, we consider food provision as another essential element of our overall care and the value of making eating an important part of the day. Our team meets with residents individually to record their preferences and if required, to help stimulate their memories of wholesome and tasty foods, whilst also providing for specific dietary and allergy requirements.
Food is sourced locally for freshness and quality through Darts Farm http://www.dartsfarm.co.uk/ and Darts Fresh http://www.dartfreshproduce.co.uk/fresh-and-local/ then prepared on site to provide tasty and nutritional meals for the residents. Typical daily menus will include at least two alternative dishes, and the Cook is happy to prepare alternative meals if requested.
In addition, snacks and drinks are available throughout the day.
