At South Lincs Foodservice, we understand that catering for specialist and general care varies dramatically from standard catering in restaurants and pubs.

 

It is a challenging sector with complex demands whose market presence is going to increase as the British population’s median age continues to rise.

 

With South Lincs Foodservice, we can assist your team by offering a wide array of quality products from named brands and artisan producers across all of our categories of chilled, frozen and ambient products. Matched with products that suit a care home environment, experience of supplying the care home sector and a dedication to your business and maintaining our partnership; we will assist in ensuring your catering offering is both economically sound and culinarily exceptional.

 

We can also offer practical literature on catering and

feeding for the following special needs groups:

 

Dementia and Dysphagia

Risk of Malnutrition

Chronic Kidney Disease

Cardiovascular Disease

Food Allergies and Intolerances

Care Homes

What are some of the current

issues and challenges?

 

• Care homes have an average budget of £3.50 per resident per day to cover all meals

 

• Care homes need to meet or exceed the CQC’s Outcome 5: Meeting Nutritional Needs as well as other CQC guidelines around health and safety

 

• Four in ten older people are likely to be malnourished when they enter a care home making malnutrition a key concern (Age UK January 2011)

 

• Many residents will have special dietary needs

due to certain health conditions

 

• Depending on location care homes cater for residents from different religious and cultural backgrounds and this will need to be reflected in their menus

• Staff skill level will vary, sometimes throughout the day, as a chef will only be there for core meal times

 

• Homes will want to obtain the highest occupancy levels to meet their financial objectives

 

• Hygiene and cleanliness of premises are vital to stop transmission of germs to vulnerable residents

Why use South Lincs Foodservice?

 

When residents require food outside of the normal eating times and there isn’t a chef available we have a selection of individually portioned ready meals that are perfect for

keeping in the freezer.

 

While it’s important to make savings by switching to own brand where possible, we also understand that for many care home residents having their favourite brands helps them to feel more at home. For example, you can find the top biscuit, tea, coffee, crisp and sauce brands all in our range to help you add homely touches to your food menu.

 

If you need advice on catering for vegetarians or vegans, religious restrictions such as Halal, or need to know more about allergies, we can provide you with handy fact sheets

for your home.

 

Our product range contains high protein and high fat foods that can be added to recipes in order to fortify them for residents who require high calories diets. Products such as milk powder, butter, coconut powder, coconut milk and full fat milk, yoghurt, cheese and cream are perfect for fortifying meals.

 

Maintaining a home and creating a clean, safe and comfortable environment will be essential for meeting CQC guidelines and making a good first impression to visitors or potential residents.

To help with this you can find cleaning products, laundry essentials and in room items in our Non-food range.

 

We have access to a specialist ranges of crockery that are durable, easy to grip and available in bold colours. They are designed for residents with Alzheimer’s, allowing them to eat independently for as long as possible.
