We take food and nutrition very seriously.

Older people have a range of dietary needs. Residents who are well and have a good appetite can enjoy a balanced healthy diet. Some of our residents have support needs and/or health conditions that impact on their food and drink intake.

That’s why we ensure that the food and drink we provide is enjoyable, nutritious and accessible, in order to maintain their health, wellbeing, and morale.

Appetising food, provided in a positive and caring environment, that meets individual needs, is a key aspect of delivering high quality care.

Friars Mead Care Home, Kings Langley, food and nutrition


The meals at Friars Mead Care Home are nutritious and can cater for special dietary needs by arrangement. There is always a choice of three dishes at every meal.

We serve main meals in our warm, well decorated Dining Room. If residents are unwell and unable to get to the Dining Room, we can serve meals in the rooms.

Also, the chef can take special requests if a resident has something they have a particular need for.

Meals from the Menu are ordered one day in advance. A member of Staff will advise the dishes that will be available next day and take the resident’s order.

  • Breakfast: 8 – 8.30am
  • Lunch: 12.30 pm
  • Supper: 5.30 pm

Additionally, we serve tea from the trolley four times in the day.

We keep in mind the styles of cooking that the people in our care may be used to. We’ll also make changes to the menus and try new recipes to keep mealtimes interesting.

Tables are beautifully set, making mealtimes special
