Life at Boucherne

Get in Touch


Mealtimes are important focal points in the day, not only to enjoy good food but also a chance to meet and talk in a pleasant environment. Nutritious, freshly cooked meals are served in the two dining rooms (or in residents' rooms, if preferred). All meals are cooked with fresh, high quality supplies bought from local butchers, fishmongers, greengrocers and supermarkets.

Anni, Boucherne's cook, goes out of her way to ensure everyone is well fed and serves an enviable range of menus, from old fashioned favourites to more modern cuisine. She also produces wonderful buffets for our Christmas Party and other special occasions.

Our menus change weekly and seasonally. There are choices for every course at most meals and alternatives can usually be arranged on request; all dietary needs and preferences are catered for. On their birthday, residents choose to have their favourite meal cooked for everyone to enjoy and may have their family join them to celebrate.

Jan (or Nice Jan as we know her!) is our in-house activities coordinator who provides a full programme of activities for all our residents to participate in as much or as little as they like. Recognising that as well as care and companionship, having stimulating things to do during the day can make all the difference to a sense of happiness and well-being.

We offer a wide variety of activities include weekly book reads in the Parlour, regular one to one or group discussions, playing board games, sticky darts, indoor bowling, jigsaws, arts and crafts, seated exercises, gardening and sing-a-longs with invited performers! Everything is optional but we encourage involvement wherever it’s appropriate and beneficial.

Excursions to pubs, restaurants and other local events are organised for those who wish to participate from time to time. Every year we have a Garden Party and a Christmas Party to which all families and friends are invited.
