Lifestyle at Whitegates
Meals at Whitegates are an important part of our residents’ day. All meals are planned to ensure that they have high nutritional value, but also that they are tasty and varied. Our menus are planned in consultation with our residents to ensure they get exactly what they like but also that they retain some important control of their daily lives. In addition to our main menus, we also cater for all special diets and individual preferences. As socialisation is so important, residents are encouraged to dine together but they can take meals in privacy if they prefer.
Activities are a vital aspect of our care programme on a daily basis. We encourage residents to continue doing the things which they have always enjoyed in order to help maintain their sense of purpose and self-worth. We, therefore, ensure a wide range of activities are available so that residents can continue the pursuit of their interests and hobbies; this helps them to lead as active a lifestyle as they wish. In addition, the dedicated Activities Coordinator will always be creating plans and accommodating special interests wherever possible.
