Where you’ll work

 

Respecting our residents as individuals is an essential part of life at The Beeches. One resident who is originally from the Caribbean was keen to see some traditional cuisine, which was an important part of their culture on the menu. Now the chef makes everything from goat curry to a spiced sweet bun served with cheese. This dish very quickly became a firm favourite with other residents across the home. Also very popular are dishes with yam and sweet potatoes. Residents at The Beeches are very much involved in the menus. They review them on a monthly basis and the chef will make changes to reflect their preferences, ensuring alternative dishes are equal in nutritional value. Sometimes the residents love to have fish and chips from a shop in Northfield, Birmingham. They like to eat it out of paper the way it should be, so our staff take time to individually wrap every single portion!
