Food plays a crucial role in our care homes, not only do we ensure our residents enjoy a healthy and varied diet tailored to their individual needs, but we also want to provide a mealtime experience that is homely and social. Our seasonal menus change daily, and drinks, snacks and light bites are always available.
We actively encourage you to maintain your independence and treat Evermore as your home which means we keep mealtimes flexible. You are free to make yourself a cup of something in the dining room whenever you like, and you are able to order food directly from the kitchen.
Come dine with us…
Our incredible team of chefs serve up restaurant-quality food with that home cooking touch. Your choices are taken in the morning, and we serve all meals in the dining room, with fresh drinks – and the occasional shandy!
Afternoon tea is served daily in our tearoom where you can enjoy a selection of our famous homemade cakes and traybakes freshly made by our talented team of chefs.
Dinner is treated as a social event with music and decorations – our residents often dress up and enjoy the evening with their friends. However, if you prefer, you more than welcome to enjoy your food from the comfort of your own room.
Our menus include pictures of all the dishes as well as clear allergen symbols so residents and carers can navigate their choices with ease.
Time for a treat
We know that our residents like a little something special now and then and you just can’t beat a family favourite! We offer a taste of home with our traditional roast dinner, and you can enjoy a buffet-style Sunday brunch. Variety really is the spice of life so get ready for our ‘Armchair Travel’ nights where you can experience different food, music, and games from around the world
Getting residents involved
It’s important that you get your say, that’s why we get you involved in designing our menus and in the final taste tests. We meet monthly to chat about your favourite dishes and what you’d like to see on the menu. We get some great requests that keep the chefs on their toes and help bring back memories for those who are on their dementia journey.
Upon arrival we will arrange a meeting with the Head Chef where you are able to discuss any dietary requirements, including allergies, intolerances, and religious needs. It’s also a great opportunity for you to discuss your likes and dislikes so we can start to build a menu around your preferences and needs.
Vegetarian options are provided every day for all residents. Halal options and kosher diets are also catered for.
For residents with dysphagia, we use the IDSSI framework to modify the texture of foods. We believe all our residents are entitled to an appetising and delicious meal, so aim to transform the experience of eating soft foods by finding innovative ways of replicating the look and taste of solid foods.
