Ronald Gibson House Demonstrate their Commitment to Diversity at their ‘Meal of the Year’
10th June 2014
Residents and their families celebrated with staff, volunteers and members of the local community recently when Ronald Gibson House held its annual ‘Meal of the year’.
Kitchen staff put on a three course silver service gourmet meal which was followed by a performance from Taryn Kay singing 50’s, 60’s and golden oldies songs while many danced and sang along. More than 60 people attended the event.
The Tooting based care centre welcomes people from all walks of life and the values and ethos of the home are centred on respecting and accommodating diversity. Victor Njoku, Care Centre Manager said: “We were delighted that so many people took part in our Meal of the Year. Meal times are an important social occasion and we aim to ensure that everyone is offered food which is appealing and appetising. Our residents have a diverse range of dietary requirements and whether they stem from religious beliefs, specific health needs or personal taste we are proud of the fact that we are successful in catering for individuals’ needs.”
When resident Steven Goldsmith was asked what he thought of the home, his response was “If I knew I was going to be treated like this then I would have come sooner.”
Ronald Gibson House comprises a nursing home caring for 24 physically frail older people, a 16 bed wing for people with dementia and a 16 bed intermediate care unit run in partnership with Wandsworth Clinical Care Commissioning Group.
Brendoncare has an enviable reputation for innovation and delivery of quality care to older people across the south. It operates 10 care centres and runs 70 social clubs for older people across Hampshire and Dorset.
