Nutrition at Quantum Care

Food isn’t only one of the greatest pleasures in life. It’s also vital to physical and mental wellbeing. That’s why Quantum Care places such an emphasis on the experience of eating.

As we specialise in caring for people living with dementia, we often have to change the presentation and style of our food so that it’s tempting and easy to access. For people who are unable to use a knife and fork, for instance, we might offer finger foods. When residents have difficulty swallowing, we can provide pureed meals. The important thing is that everybody enjoys the experience of eating, so we always ensure that everything we serve – in whatever form – is well presented and appetising.

All residents who come into our homes are assessed using the Malnutrition Universal Screening Tool (MUST) to ensure that they maintain a good nutritional status. Our catering teams work closely with care staff to plan menus according to these assessments. Those who are assessed as requiring fortification will have a specially designed nutrition and hydration programme.

All our meals are prepared using fresh ingredients from sustainable sources that are as local as possible. All of our kitchens produce a variety of menu choices every day and are experienced in meeting medical, ethnic and religious dietary needs. People with food allergies or intolerances are also catered for.
