The quality of meals provided in care homes is a sensitive issue that requires a good deal of consideration. At AJ Purchasing we have over twenty years supporting care home caterers and we acknowledge that we have a part to play in providing helpful advice and information for care home operators to ensure they offer a nutritionally balanced range of goods.
Meal time occasions form a focal point of the day for the resident and it should not only be a source of good nutrition but an enjoyable and social occasion. Our example care home menu considers the National Minimum Standards and reflects current thoughts on best practice.
