Diet and Nutrition

Fremington Homes understand the needs of the elderly so it's no surprise that we are passionate about food. Nutrition is of paramount importance to the health and wellbeing of our Tenants. 

Losing the ability to cook for one-self and prepare drinks is one of the tasks that elderly people find difficult not just from a health and safety aspect but also from a  "I can't be bothered to cook just for me" mind set. It is so lovely to see our tenants joining in with meal times it really is a big part of their lives. 

We believe in fresh produce.  Wholesome and quite simply delicious! 

Each of our tenants are included in meal planning and choosing the groceries and ingredients they desire. Some of our tenants enjoy using the computer and like to order deliveries online.

The individual’s needs are paramount when it comes to nutrition including their likes and dislikes.  Each and every mealtime can be a group affair or left to the individual to prepare meals themselves if desired.  However, it's always a great time when everyone gets together around the dinner table.

We cater for many different dietary requirements: diabetes, gluten free, vegetarian, low salt we are very much use to dealing with diets for individuals. There is no need to worry we will cater for your needs.

We try to cook as much as we can from scratch and not use process foods. It is amazing the difference when new tenants come in and suddenly they are given good food and plenty to drink and they seem to improve so much. 

Meal times are very sociable in our lodges it is a good time for a get together and food seems to bring out conversation and after a nice little nap!
