Anchor’s Springfield Court retirement property in Bradford participated in Nutrition and Hydration week by holding a morning tea for their residents and families.
Catering for every dietary requirement, Chef Manager Louise Kane said “we make sure that there’s a selection of tempting savoury and sweet treats. The menu today includes mini quiches, cheese scones, chocolate shortbread and lemon mousse to name just a few. The mousse is particularly good for soft diets and these are also packed full of calories which is just what most of our customers need. As well as carefully checking the nutritional value, we make the food look as appealing as possible. We get great feedback from residents and their families about the food we serve here at Springfield.”
The day was made extra special, with the opening of a shop in the lounge area. Officially opened by Lord Mayor Khadim Hussain, the shop will sell a variety of snacks and sweets to residents and families. Business Manager Vicki Hemsworth said: “the new shop has instantly become a focal point for meeting and greeting and has made a significant impact within the home as a community hub.
“It has daily visitors from customers, colleagues, visitors and even healthcare professionals, who are buying either a quarter of sweets, cards or personal toiletries and as a result we have had to increase our stock lines! The bonus is that it’s making money for our customer’s amenity fund, so we can plan more projects for the home in the future.”
