A Taste of Abbeyfield
At Abbeyfield, we understand the importance of healthy well-balanced meals, which is something we offer in many of our houses and homes. Good food brings everyone a lot of joy, as it helps to bring people together. Our houses and homes take great pride in the food they offer to our residents, creating seasonal dishes and taking part in competitions across the Abbeyfield Family.
Food plays a big part in bringing our residents together. Shared mealtime experiences enable our residents to swap stories, enjoy nutritious food and forge lasting relationships, which in turn reduces loneliness and helps residents maintain a healthy weight.
In this section you'll find:
Recipes from our residents and staff showcasing wonderful food and favourite meals.
"My mum has called Abbeyfield House her home for three years now. She went for a trial period and never left! There are 12 residents so it's like one big happy family. The staff are truly amazing and they care for these people as they would their own family. The food cannot be faulted, everything made from scratch from the finest ingredients. It is a gem of a place."Daughter of resident

"Five glowing stars! My mother could not have been made to feel more welcome. Wonderful, caring and always cheerful staff, delicious home-cooked food and, although she continues to live independently, having been made to feel part of the small community of residents, loneliness is a thing of the past."Daughter of resident
