Life at Oakhurst: Dining at Oakhurst
For most of our residents, enjoyment of their food is a big part of daily life. We therefore take their dietary needs seriously, and encourage a healthy balanced diet.
All new nursing home residents undergo a nutritional assessment when they first arrive with us, and at regular intervals. This ensures that our food can be tailored by our experienced full time chef to meet all nutritional requirements. We cater for all dietary needs, be they medical or cultural.
Residents have the option to socialise in the dining room, or dine in their rooms, with meals provided on trays and assistance given if required.
