Based in Derbyshire and operating 13 care homes across England, Wales and Northern Ireland, MPS Care Group has appointed apetito as its catering provider in a continued drive to provide comfortable, safe and homely environments for its residents.
Offering a modern approach to care, MPS staff respect the need for independence, and with encouragement and support encourage residents to maintain as much of this as possible.
MPS Care Group’s decision to partner with apetito is part of a programme of improvement across all the homes. The quality and consistency of the meals across the group had previously varied greatly and it was felt apetito represented an opportunity to ensure all residents in all homes were being served great food every day. The added benefit of knowing the nutritional content in every meal, combined with IDDSI compliant texture-modified foods, ensures each resident can dine well every day.
To date, apetito has successfully launched its dining experience into six of the 13 homes, with the remaining homes coming on board over the next few weeks.
On the new partnership with MPS Care Group, Andy Lowe, Care Homes Division Manager for apetito, said: “The group aligns itself with many of the values we hold here at apetito. MPS Care Group provides a level of service which puts the resident at the centre, an idea at the heart of what we do.”
Joel Gray, MPS Care Group’s CEO, commented: “Providing the highest quality to our residents is paramount to our business; the partnership with a market leader such as apetito reaffirms our commitment to enhancing our residents’ experience within our homes. The implementation of the food and equipment has been well received across the homes currently on-boarded; the roll out has been smooth and we are delighted with the progress to date.”
