Good food is important, not only because we take our nutrition and hydration seriously but also because of the enjoyment that food can bring.
Hammerson House, Wohl Campus and Nightingale House are both fully Kosher Homes. Hammerson House is supervised under KLBD (Kosher London Beth Din) with a full time Shomer. All catering is outsourced to Caterplus.
A seasonal menu, which include a vegetarian alternative, is offered at lunch and dinner. Specialist dietary requirements are also catered for. There are also many opportunities for drinks and snacks throughout the day. Residents are able to give input to the menu choices and our Shabbat and festival menus are always a particular highlight. In addition to three nutritious meals a day, there is a grazing fridge on each floor where Residents can access a variety of snacks. Afternoon tea and cake is provided for every Household.
The cafés in both Homes are available every day apart from Shabbat, when urns are provided for tea and coffee. The cafes serve a choice of tasty dishes and snacks for Residents, Relatives and Staff.
Our Dietitian plays an important role, ensuring Residents’ meals are nutritious, plentiful and that hydration is paramount to maintain everyone’s good health. Should a Resident need support with eating or drinking, our Teams are trained to offer help, whenever needed, during each mealtime and at any time a Resident wishes to have a drink or snack.
