THE KITCHEN

THE KITCHEN

At Brookside our meals are delicious and we offer a varied menu which provides good home cooking.
Our food is locally sourced and we support local farm shops and butchers where possible. Meals are prepared in our 5 star rated kitchen and are based on traditional home cooking using fresh produce. It’s never a problem catering for special dietary requirements, as all menus are discussed with residents to ensure everyone gets exactly what they would like. An alternative meal is always available.
Breakfast is served in your room or in the dining room / conservatory area, allowing you to relax and start the day with ease.

Lunch and tea are served in our dining room, unless otherwise requested and supper in the lounge or of course, your own room.

Mid-morning / afternoon drinks and snacks are also served including fresh fruit which is available daily.

If it’s your birthday, we’ll bake or organise a cake big enough to accommodate all the residents – and friends and family – should they wish to join in the celebrations!

In our 3 months experience of Brookside, we know Brookside is indeed unique, delivering a very personal yet totally professional care experience. The attention to detail on even the minor things has ensured the transition from home to Brookside was not a painful one. The entire team at Brookside is "home from home". We are at peace of mind as a family knowing the person we love is happily settled and very well looked after.

Brookside is a small independent care home that does what it says on the tin, "they care". The resident's rooms are home from home. They are well furnished, tastefully decorated, warm and welcoming. The residents, if they choose, are able to eat together and socialise together and genuinely form friendships. The staff are helpful and attentive and well trained. It was thanks to them that my mother's recent bout of breathlessness was identified early and the paramedics were called enabling her to be taken to A & E promptly. This care home and its staff are special. I would have no hesitation in recommending this care services and facilities of Brookside Residential to any prospective client families.

My nan chose Brookside herself at the age of 96, she liked the smallness and family feel with home cooked meals, outings and planned activities. The room was faultless, everything an elderly lady needed. The garden was lovely and accessible. The staff were helpful, kind, caring and understanding. The last year of my nan's life she got really frail and ill, she was rushed to hospital a few times. The staff were great with her care. My Nan died at Brookside care home, very peacefully and with as much dignity as possible. She was comfortable and happy to the end. A few of the staff attended her funeral and were visibly upset, it showed they cared.

A lovely residential care home in a rural location with kind, caring staff. They offer many different activities on a daily/weekly basis to ensure the residents have interaction, including craft days, baking, sing-a-longs and day trips too. I cannot recommend them highly enough. Keep up the good work!
