Here at Amberley Care Home we understand the importance of living a fulfilled life and the role an enjoyable dining experience plays. Our resident chefs take great pride in serving home cooked meals where variety and particular favourite dishes are always on offer. Meals can be served privately in residents rooms or enjoyed socially in one of our dining areas; residents preferences and best interests will always remain at the heart of every aspect of care we deliver.
With age, the food we put into our bodies has a considerably greater impact on our health, and we appreciate that having a nutritious meal time has a substantial impact on our overall health and well-being. Combined with a relaxing environment where the shared dining space overlooks our beautiful landscaped garden, relatives and friends can be assured residents are enjoying a delightful dining experience every day.
Mealtimes Made For You
Mealtimes are extremely important to us at Amberley Care Home as they provide us with the perfect time to gather with our residents, and gives them the opportunity to establish strong connections with their loved ones and fellow residents.
We understand the social benefits of group eating and encourage all of our residents to eat together as much as possible. However, we also offer room service for those who prefer to eat in the tranquility of their own rooms. If residents require special assistance, a member of our staff will happily sit with them and help them eat at their own pace; we are more than happy to assist our residents in any way we can.
We welcome resident’s friends, family, or loved ones to join us for dinner, and can do so by sitting with us in our shared dining spaces, or enjoying a mealtime privately either in their own room or in one of our dedicated dining rooms. Mealtimes can be one of those most enjoyed parts of the family day, and we want to ensure residents can continue to find pleasure in that experience when living with us here at Amberley Care Home.

Dining with Dementia
Attention to detail is key in providing peaceful and enjoyable eating experiences for our dementia residents; ensuring meals are served in a clutter-free atmosphere and that all of our resident’s frustrations and tensions that are linked with dementia are relieved. The use of specialised tableware is designed to assist our residents with fine motor skills, enabling dementia residents to be able to continue eating and enjoying their meals as independently as possible.
Focussing on our residents with dementia is critical, and making sure to pay extra close attention to their eating experiences can make all the difference.
