Spotlight Week – Leading the Way With Care Home Meals

Today marks the start of our ‘Spotlight Week’. Each day, you will be hearing from our experts regarding our new Cutlery Free Dining Initiative – developed by Head of Culinary and Hospitality, Simon Lawrence and Head of Dementia, Jo Crossland, working in collaboration with Premier Foods.

Avery Healthcare Leading the Way

Avery Healthcare is at the forefront when it comes to creative and innovative care home meals. The cutlery-free guide aims to inspire and raise awareness around the importance of healthy, nutritional cutlery-free meals that is inclusive to everyone.

The chefs at Avery work tirelessly to ensure that residents are treated with dignity and respect in every aspect of their lives, and mealtimes are no exception. Gareth Cartledge, Avery’s Regional Culinary and Hospitality Manager, says, “Chefs must know and support the ever-growing complexity of the resident’s dietary requirements, whether simple calorie boosting or changing textures to modify meals. It takes the old finger foods concept to a whole new level and provides understanding and insight on why and how to provide Cutlery-Free food to residents”.

Please note: This initiative is not a replacement to current daily seasonal menus but a possible alternative with the same nutritional value should a resident struggle at mealtimes.
