Wiltshire Farm Foods Presentations and Tasting Sessions in the Perth Office

By News, Perthshire No Comments
We thoroughly enjoyed having Terri from Wiltshire Farm Foods visit us in the Perth Office to do presentations and tasting sessions for our Carers. Through Terri’s very informative presentations and excellent literature, we learnt that not only do Wiltshire Farm Foods help their customers to maintain their independence but that their special diet ranges and softer food range support a wide range of people.  
Everyone had a great time sampling the variety of foods that they offer.

Perth Office Italian Day (Festa della Repubblica), Canada’s 150th birthday and France’s Bastille Day

By News, Perthshire No Comments
As we have Carer Companions from all over the world we have been celebrating this by holding country-themed Open Days in the Perth Office.
On 2 June we celebrated Italy’s National Day. Elisa Esposito, our Italian recruitment co-ordinator,  was on hand to add some authenticity to the day with her delicious homemade lasagna. We had an Italian themed quiz for clients and lots of pizza and tiramisu as well.  The city of Perth has strong links with Italy and The Perth Italian Club was established in 1972.

There was much fun to be had on the Open Day to celebrate Canada’s 150th birthday and France’s National Day.  Our Companion Carer, Kim MacKinnon is Canadian and Veronique Bezy is French. We served up Pancakes with maple syrup as well as cheese, grapes and croissants.  Clients and staff attended and we had general knowledge quizzes on both countries  The lucky client winners won a bottle of bubbly and some lovely french coffee.

Our Care Supervisor, Tracey Comrie, did some cake decorating for the occasion and the cake was then donated to to the residents of Pitlair House in the Bow of Fife where we support one of our clients.

Food tasting in the Edinburgh Office with Cook Morningside

By Edinburgh, News No Comments

On Wednesday 21st June, the Edinburgh team were lucky enough to have some visitors to our weekly Care Management Team meeting. Jane from Cook Morningside came along to talk to us about her products and give us a taste. We invited a few clients and carers to come and try out the food too. Cook are a UK wide company who freshly make and then freeze their meals. Everything is made from scratch with no additives or preservatives, frozen at  their Head Office and then sent out to shops around the UK. The Morningside shop has two friendly delivery drivers who take the orders out to their customers throughout Edinburgh for them to keep in the freezer until it is time to put in the oven or microwave. All the food looked so tempting, and we were happy to give it a try! A few favourites were the chicken liver pate, macaroni cheese and the salted caramel cheesecake. We were meant to be tasting the food in case we could recommend it to our clients, but I think a few of the Office staff will be popping into the shop or placing orders for the weekend!
