At Rubislaw Park, we believe that the entire dining experience is an incredibly important one.
How, where and what a resident eats can really affect how they feel, and the food we put into our bodies has a much bigger effect on our health as we start to get older.
We provide residents with a dining experience that allows them to keep their independence while being completely able to dine with dignity, by letting them decide how they want to spend their meal times.
Be Our Guest
We really value our dining and meal times at Rubislaw Park, as it serves as the perfect opportunity to get together with friends, family, and other residents to share a tasty meal and lots of lovely memories. Our resident chefs take great pride in serving nutritious, home cooked meals and regularly consult with our residents to ensure that all of their favourites are available. If one-on-one assistance is required, a member of our team will be more than happy to sit with our residents to help them eat at their own pace.
Although we encourage all of our residents to eat together, residents also have the option to eat their meals from the comfort of their own rooms. We love it when friends and family come to visit, and they are more than welcome to eat with the residents both in the dining room, as well as their own rooms. Our weekly resident coffee mornings, Afternoon Tea events and Friday Happy Hour are all part of our all-inclusive lifestyle and ensure that there’s plenty going on for our residents to join in with. Many residents have fond memories of laying the table for lunch or dinner or preparing vegetables, and they are more than welcome to continue with their habits if they want to at Rubislaw Park.
Facilities at Rubislaw Park
At Rubislaw Park, all of our residents are encouraged to participate in a range of activities. We make every effort at Rubislaw Park to make all of our facilities and programmes as extensive and accessible as possible, whether people have been practising these hobbies their entire lives or are just getting started.
Dining with Dementia
Our residents living with dementia are incredibly important to us, which is why we pay such careful consideration to the dining experiences of these residents. As dementia frequently causes visual impairment, we choose to use high-rimmed tableware and tablecloths in various colours. We even have specialised cutlery intended to allow individuals with limited dexterity to eat independently and carry on enjoying their meals.
