Nutrition at Newgrange


Fresh food for healthy bodies & minds






At Newgrange we believe that food and nutrition are two of the most important factors in the well being of our residents.
For a start good food is important for everyone's enjoyment of life and particularly so for the elderly and the frail. Good nutrition is vital for sustenance and recovery.

Nutrition for the elderly

Fresh food for healthy bodies and minds

All of our food is freshly prepared on the premises by our own team of qualified cooks.

Each resident is individually assessed for their dietary needs, whether that be for medical or cultural requirements. We monitor each resident's food intake to ensure sufficient nutrition and balance in their diet. We use fresh local organic ingredients wherever possible including meats, fresh, never frozen fish, eggs, potatoes and other vegetables. Meals can be taken in the dining room or in a resident's own bedroom whichever is their preference.


Our chef has extensive knowledge of how to cater for residents with Diabetes. She has undertaken further training, so that she can meet their specific dietary requirements. 

Newgrange Autumn & Winter Menus

We design 4 weeks of menus to suit the seasons.

We gain input from our residents before designing our menus, so that we can cook their favourite dishes.

Please see our Autumn & Winter Menus below as a preview of the lovely food the residents' enjoy in our home.

Overall Experience 5 out of 5

The care home provides excellent care for my mum and I can’t thank them enough for what they do, always helpful with enquires and I can see a lot of care and effort goes into how my mum is cared for, I would recommend them as my mum has now been cared for, for over 2 years and even through covid the Home ensured we could see my mum.

Overall Experience 5 out of 5

My dad has been in the care home since 2019 I visited a lot of care homes but as soon as I walked into this one I knew it was the one for my dad. Everything was new then and clean and has all the latest equipment and up to date. All the staff are lovely and take really good care of him and my dad says the same. He also really enjoys the activities they put on there such as quizzes, indoor bowling and also the singers that come in. The staff always encourage my dad to join in and he always gets up to have a little dance.
