Our policy at Bonnyton house is to ensure that residents are provided with a high standard of meals that will help each resident maintain a healthy lifestyle. We aim to provide quality, quantity and choice to meet all taste and dietary needs. Special diets will be discussed on your admission along with your likes and dislikes and this will be detailed in your care plan.
The home has planned activities daily and also organises outside entertainment to visit the home or for you to visit local events. We encourage our residentsto remain part of the community and can escort residents to clubs etc. Community groups and churches visit the home on a regular basis.
The home also has a Friends Group who provide entertainment and outings for the residents and their programme of events are displayed in their quarterly newsletter.
Our aim is to ensure that residents are assisted to maintain a weight that remains within a level recommended by the Malnutrition Advisory Group. To ensure we meet our aim we will, with the resident’s approval enter details of their weight and height into the care plans and compare this with the Malnutrition Universal Screening Tool (MUST). This will be done on an ongoing basis throughout you stay with us. Where a resident falls out with the recommended parameters we will contact their G.P. or Dietician for advice.
