Food and drink

Handsworth offers a dining experience that enables residents to maintain their independence and dine with dignity. Our staff support residents to make mealtime choices in a way that best suits them.

While residents can choose to dine in their own rooms, we encourage residents to eat together in the dining area so they can make the most of this valuable social time, we love it when relatives and friends join their loved ones for meals too.
