Working in social care is a fulfilling career because you make a real difference to people’s lives.

Mealtimes are always a highlight of the day.

Our executive Chef leads our team and says:

"I encourage all the Home Chefs to be inventive and constantly grow in their roles. A great way to see how you are doing is to turn the tables and sit and eat in your own dining room. I regularly sit with my diners asking them what they like and if there is something new that they remember and would love to taste again.”
