Meeting this standard

We checked that people who use this service

  • Are supported to have adequate nutrition and hydration.

How this check was done

Our judgement

Meals are well managed, creative and provide enough quantity, daily variation, nutrition and interest for people living at Moss View.

User experience

Comments from people who live at the home about the quality and quantity of food were all good and included, "The food is good". Also, " If you don't like something there is a choice."

Other evidence

Lunch was being served and looked appetising and had fresh vegetables and home made baking. The cook said to us, "We use as much fresh produce as possible." Dining areas were clean and presentable. We saw staff helping people with meals who needed support in a sensitive, dignified way.

Relatives we spoke to about the quality and quantity of food were all positive and

included, "The food always looks good and is well presented."

The person in charge told us nutritional screening is now in place for residents on a regular basis, to ensure what people eat and drink is monitored. We confirmed this by looking at care records. One staff member said, "We would know if someone was missing meals or not eating and act upon it."

We spoke to the cook who told us he has completed food and hygiene training and was

well aware of how to prepare diabetic meals and blended meals.
