Here at Mayfield, we pride ourselves in providing a quality service at the highest standards possible. We currently hold a 'Very Good' food hygiene rating, which we are confident will provide peace of mind to all of our residents.
We believe that meals form a vital part of the residents’ lives. Each meal is carefully planned and any special needs are noted. Residents are given a choice at all meals but are free to change their minds if there are other choices available. Menus are rotated on a three weekly basis to ensure maximum choice for residents.
Residents are always welcome to have juice or something to eat during the course of the day. Special care is taken of residents who are ill or who appear to be losing weight. All residents are weighed regularly and any weight loss carefully monitored and managed.
We encourage all residents to eat in the dining room, but some choose to eat in their rooms or the lounge and this wish is respected. Mealtimes are always lively and are a time to socialise. Medications are also administered by meal times and the staff get the opportunity to assess the residents in a social setting.
Meal times are as follows:-
Breakfast 7:00am – 9:00am
Morning tea and biscuits 10:30 am
Lunch 12:30pm – 1:30pm
Afternoon tea 3:30 pm
Tea 4:30pm – 5:30pm
Dinner 7:30 pm onwards
Protected visiting for the dignity and privacy of residents (visitors can stay in their relatives bedroom during these times if they wish)
