Riverdale Care Home Celebrates Five Star Food Rating
Riverdale Care Home provides first-class individual residential and nursing care in an intimate and welcoming family atmosphere, and is situated in a peaceful residential area in Braintree. The team work incredibly hard to provide residents with a wonderful varied menu, with all meals prepared with fresh, locally sourced, seasonal produce taking into account the individual tastes and dietary needs of the people it cares for.
The home prides itself on their menus, which will satisfy even those with the smallest or most discerning of appetites; from breakfast through to dinner, residents can discover something different with fresh flavours and lovely, well-presented meals. Their great chefs and catering team are always keeping themselves busy in the kitchen creating new and exciting dishes for everyone to enjoy, as well as freshly baked cakes for afternoon teas.
Renata Sulugiuc, Manager at Riverdale Care Home, said “It is wonderful to receive the 5 Star Rating from Food Standards Agency, which is testament to the hard work of all the catering team.”
The Food Standards Agency rates establishments to see if food is safe, correctly labelled and whether there are healthy and sustainable meals available within all premises of England, Wales and Northern Ireland. From a score of zero to five, food hygiene ratings are given to food handling businesses, such as care homes, after inspection to assess how well they comply with food safety laws. Riverdale Care Home was rated as 5 Star, the highest rating.
Carl Weston, Catering and Hospitality Lead at Westgate Healthcare said “Mealtimes are such an important part of the day for many people living in a care home and it is great to hear that the team has received a 5 Star Rating from Food Standards Agency.”
