With care homes having been locked down since March, staff of Edward Moore House Residential Care Home in Gravesend decided to treat their residents to an evening at The Edward Moore Restaurant.
Residents of Rapport Housing & Care’s homes have been staying safe since the organisation closed the home to visitors in early March and whilst visitors can now see loved ones in the garden marquee with social distancing in place, an evening out on the town is still off the cards.
With that in mind, staff at the Trinity Road home wanted to do something different for the residents and give them the opportunity to enjoy some normality and a relaxing evening with first class food.
The Edward Moore was open for business as residents were invited to indulge in a delicious four-course meal, comprising several options, including creamy mushrooms, sirloin steak and Black Forest Gateau, to name a few. The evening ended with a cheeseboard, for those who had room.
Whilst the staff took their orders and topped up their wine, classical music played in the background, creating an authentic and calming ambience.
Melanie Martin, Deputy Manager commented: “The residents had a great time dining at The Edward Moore, they were delighted with the food and said it was just like going out to eat.
“Our staff waitresses did a great job and the kitchen produced some lovely food, which went down very well. It was lovely to be able to treat the residents to a fun experience after a few difficult months.”
