Individual needs & Dietary requirements

Shortly after every resident arrives at the Old Vicarage we will discuss their diet and food preferences in detail. Our experienced cooks will then cater for all their individual needs. Appetising meals are prepared daily, are nutritionally balanced and cooked with fresh ingredients. A tasty, varied and seasonal menu is offered every day and always includes a choice.

There is a traditional dining room where residents can enjoy sociable mealtimes with other residents, or they can dine in their own room if they wish.

This is just an example of our menu, which is changed every day over a four week rota system so as not to be repetitive.

Any special diets can be catered for such as diabetic, religious or liquidised tastes and all meals are presented in an attractive manner. Meal times can be flexible and all meals are taken in an unhurried manner where staff are on hand to assist as necessary.

Dining accompanied by resident’s family or friends can be arranged providing notice is given.


Happy Residents

“I would like to thank you and all of your dedicated staff for all of their kind and excellent care. When my mother arrived, she was not happy due to the effects of her condition and had lost a lot of confidence and mobility. The transformation since living with you at The Old Vicarage is incredible. The whole family have noted her happiness and contentment. The peace of mind we all now enjoy is much appreciated.”

Mrs B

“Over the years I have visited a few care homes and I can honestly say the Old vicarage has been the most homely and caring I have come across…Whenever I have visited all the staff have been very friendly and have shown genuine care for all the guests.”

Mr H

“Thank you so much for the amazing care that my Granny received with you. You run such a lovely home. I am always telling my Health and Social Care students about you all and hoping they turn out as caring and competent as all of you.”

Miss A

“Thank you so much for all your wonderful care of Mum over the last 3 years. Words cannot really express how grateful we have been to have Mum looked after in such a lovely place. As you can imagine it’s never easy to have to have a parent ‘looked after’ in care, but The Old vicarage has been the next best thing to having Mum at home. You have all been so attentive and caring, nothing has ever been too much trouble, and we will always be grateful for this.”

Mrs I

“Thank you for all the kindness, attention and love you gave to M. She could not have had a better place to be in her last 3 years. Also, I would like to say how welcome you always made me feel when visiting. Always a cuppa. It was much appreciated.”
