At Thomas Ridley we fully appreciate that care home catering is a challenging and complex sector, and the demands of this sector are only going to increase as the age of the British population continues to rise and more people seek the support of nursing and residential care.

 

Providing a healthy balanced diet plays a major part in the well-being and quality of life of care home residents and doing so can be a difficult challenge for operators. Catering for a broad spectrum of care needs from elderly residential living to nursing care for an array of physical and mental needs as well as providing crucial nutritional feeding for palliative or postoperative care, the task bestowed upon the care home chef is no simple feat.
