We firmly believe that when you eat well, you live well too. This is a core part of our brighterkind philosophy of care, centering on good nutrition and the importance of mealtimes as a social occasion.
Our dining room is always set to restaurant standards, so residents need worry about nothing but enjoying the food.
Find out more about our dining facilities.
Each day our chef prepares restaurant-style meals combining variety with a balanced diet and an emphasis on locally sourced ingredients. Our residents get involved in helping to plan our menus, too.
The dining room always becomes a hub of conversation and laughter, which gives even our more frail residents a chance to come together and socialise. Whether it’s tea and cakes in the garden or a roast each Sunday, we encourage our residents to make the most of living in an active and friendly environment.
Of course, when, where and who you eat with is entirely up to you. Friends and family can join you as often as you’d like (at a small charge), although we prefer to have as much notice as possible. Our extras menu gives you the option to order snacks at any time of the day.Special requirements
If you have any special dietary requirements or preferences, please let us know on arrival. We are happy to cater to your needs and wishes, however complex.
All the rooms are en-suite with toilet and hand basin, and there are also two bathrooms and a shower room where full assistance can be provided.Everything you need
All our rooms are furnished to the highest specifications with your comfort in mind, and each room has individual décor. Your bedroom furniture consists of: an appropriate bed suitable to your needs, wardrobe, three drawer chest, bedside table with lockable drawer, over-bed table, armchair and other furniture suitable to the size of the room. There’s also space for a TV for you to enjoy programmes at your leisure.Personalise your space
We understand that moving into Wheaton Aston will be a considerable transition, but one we try to make feel as easy as possible. Your room is your own personal space, which is why we encourage you to personalise it if you like, by hanging your favourite pictures or bringing small pieces of furniture.
