Douglas Court provide a tasty food dining experience

Our residents have been exploring the world of flavour through weekly taster sessions. The food tasting experiences took residents on a gastronomic journey through a host of new dishes and flavours to find out what they would like to see more of on future menus.

The ‘Flavours from around the world’ taster session gave residents the opportunity to try exciting new foods from Italy, India, and the Caribbean.  

“The taster sessions went down a real treat with all the residents. We regularly encourage feedback about the food on our menus, so this was a great opportunity to get that feedback whilst having a lot of fun! We will definitely be planning more taster sessions in the future as part of our social programme.” mentioned Kate Gilvear, Home Manager.

Douglas court Care Home specialises in providing bespoke care and support to elderly residents and is one of eight Adept Care Homes that are trialling the ‘taster sessions’. For some, an activity that involves trying new things is a powerful and positive experience. It is a great conversation starter and helps people relive old memories.

“It was really fun being able to try new foods, some I had never even heard of before. I really enjoyed the taster sessions and I’m excited to do more of them in the future.” Added Jean, resident at Douglas Court.
