St Philips Care looks forward to special occasions such as birthdays, anniversaries where our Cooks can excel in their baking skills. Families and friends are always encouraged and welcomed to our homes and we freely provide refreshments for residents and their guests throughout the day.
St Philips Care is passionate about food and believes in having the very best ingredients for our Cooks to create and display first class, balanced, nutritious and appealing food for a wide range of palates. We feel that mealtimes are an extremely important time for our residents, and it is imperative that our cooks are all talented individuals.
We are therefore very fortunate to be in partnership with excellent suppliers such as E- Foods who supplies our homes across the country with fresh meat, dairy, fruit and vegetables; frozen food and groceries from 3663 and fresh fish from Direct Seafoods.
3663 is a supplier to Care Providers across the UK as a one-stop shop with quality ingredients. We work very closely with each other to bring new products to our homes including their own 3663 brands and everyone’s favourite brands. 3663 guides and offers us inspiration and support with our menus, and their experience in care services means they are very well placed to offer us advice and help.
St Philips is also committed to working with local suppliers and tries to ensure and implement that our food is of an excellent quality and is sourced locally, seasonally and sustainably. E-Foods is such a company that can offer and support St Philips Care. They work with an umbrella of local suppliers and work very closely with local Butchers, Greengrocers, Bakeries and Dairies via a network throughout the UK, and can provide fresh produce up to four times per week. St Philips Care is therefore very pleased to be working alongside them and supporting local businesses where we can.
We are also proud to be in partnership with Direct Seafoods who is the largest fresh fish supplier in the UK who supplies fresh fish to our care homes. All fish is sourced from sustainable fish farms and live sea-stock ensuring that our residents have a varied menu to look forward to each week.
All our homes appreciate that nutritional food and a good, hearty and healthy meal plays a vital part in maintaining the health and wellbeing of all residents in care. We also feel that this is no mean feat and therefore value the work of our Cooks seriously as St Philips Care understands that food, nutrition and mealtimes are a high priority for older people.
Our menus at each of our homes are revised on a regular basis giving a wide variety of choice. We, of course, will listen to our resident’s wishes and desires and, if necessary, families wishes.
Our Dining Rooms are designed to make dining a pleasurable experience, and St. Philips Care takes great pride in their Dining Room service with tables been laid to a high standard. However, residents if they wish to, can choose to have their meals in their own rooms.
