We provide a welcoming environment in the dining room and ensure that mealtimes are pleasant unhurried occasions providing opportunities for social interaction as well as nourishment.
Three meals are provided each day, including a cooked breakfast. There is a regularly changed menu for lunch and the evening meal and residents are always offered a choice of meals.
We cater for special and therapeutic diets, as agreed in the individual residents care plan. Our care team are available to provide discreet, sensitive and individualised assistance with eating and drinking for those who need it.
Hot and Cold drinks and snacks are available at all times. If residents wish to eat in the privacy of their own room, they are welcome to do so. Food preferences based on ethnic, religious and ethical observances are respected.
At Ostley House we believe in purchasing quality products for our residents. For example, our meat products are locally produced in Cumbria and supplied by Lake District Farmers Ltd, who also supply restaurants owned by Gordon Ramsay, Marco Pierre White, Raymond Blanc, Nigel Howarth and Richard Branson.
