The primary function of the Total Care catering department is to successfully meet the dietary needs of all its residents. To achieve this, a catering manager oversees head chefs, senior and junior catering staff who produce a variety of food, prepared and cooked on site. Total Care understands the importance of a good diet and endeavours to serve food which is wholesome and appetising. A range of specialist dietary needs are catered for including modified diets and specific requirements are discussed with clients and families in preparation for admission. Total Care is fully supported by the local NHS Foundation Trust in relation to dietary advice.

All main meals are ordered through the staff attached to the relevant suite or unit on the preceding day using varying menus that provide a good choice. Individual menus for each day are displayed in each suite and on reception.


Breakfast is served from 08:30 to 09:30 daily. There is a wide choice which includes grapefruit, prunes, porridge, toast and preserves, cereals and a full cooked breakfast. Residents who wish to enjoy a lie-in can enjoy cereal and toast whenever they wish.
