Using good quality ingredients the chef creates a wide selection of tasty meals three times a day. All our menus are nutritionally checked, and our chef caters for all tastes and diets. We discuss each resident's preferences and any special requirements they may have shortly after they arrive, so that their tastes and needs can be catered for.
We also serve biscuits with mid-morning tea or coffee, and delicious home-made cake with afternoon tea. Our menus also celebrate traditional days and events throughout the year, from Shrove Tuesday (Pancake Day) to Mothering Sunday and Christmas.
At Priory Mews we encourage each resident to lead a full and active lifestyle wherever possible. So our activity co-ordinator ensures there’s always something enjoyable and stimulating to do for residents – from music and movement sessions to quizzes and bingo. We adapt all of our activities to cater for differing abilities and needs.
We also have a hairdressing salon on-site and local entertainers who visit regularly.
