Life at Future Care
At Future Care we put our residents’ needs at the heart of everything we do – by creating care plans considering everyone’s nutritional needs and personal interests. We aim to involve our residents’ in the creation of our in-house menus and stimulating activity programmes (including when possible days out), to ensure a sense of belonging within one or our unique communities.
We believe that food is one of life’s greatest pleasures – mealtimes matter to our residents and to us.
Homemade and healthy
Every Future Care home has a dedicated in-house catering team. Menus are prepared in consultation with our residents and cooked from scratch every day using only the best quality and seasonal ingredients.
There are two options at least, every mealtime and alternatives will always be available to suit requests.
We strive to ensure all food served at our homes is nutritious, varied and taste great.
Catering to all
Our chefs are passionate about creating menus that appeal to each resident. Featuring firm favourites that our residents know and love, menus cater to cultural preferences and dietary requirements whilst being visibly appealing and meeting recommended nutritional guidelines.
We offer three meals a day, as well as morning/afternoon refreshments. There are also plenty of nutritious snacks available on request day or night.
Our residents living with dementia may experience problems with eating and drinking. Therefore, special consideration has been given to mealtimes so they can be as enjoyable as possible. We promote the dining experience by setting the scene and introducing more flexibility. From special straws to easy-grip cutlery which are dementia-specific, are widely available throughout Future Care Homes.
We promote social activity within our homes. They can help us to maintain social connections and reduce feelings of loneliness. Creating moments of joy.
They can also offer a great way to learn a new skill or visit a hobby that was enjoyed previously.
Research has shown that taking part in social activities offers great benefits in later life.
