That’s why at Bothwell Castle Care Home, all of our meals have been designed and put together with our residents wellbeing at the heart and soul of them. Our delicious meals, paired with our stunning dining facilities, make for the perfect dining experience for breakfast, lunch and dinner. 

Quality, Nutritious Food for You 

It’s a well-known fact that sharing meals with one another is a surefire way to bring you closer together. We recognise this at Bothwell Castle Care Home, and actively encourage all of our residents to embrace all the good things that group living has to offer. We treasure the time we get to spend with our residents during mealtimes, as it gives us the chance to really connect with them. 

However, if for whatever reason one of our residents would prefer to not participate in the group dining experience, it isn’t mandatory for them to take part. If it would make them more comfortable, they are more than welcome to eat in the comfort and privacy of their own room. Assistance will always be provided to those residents who need it here, and if any of our residents struggle with certain aspects of eating by themselves, a member of our dedicated team will be more than happy to lend a helping hand. 

A friend of our residents is a friend of ours, and at Bothwell Castle Care Home, any friend is more than welcome to dine with us. Whether they’d like to join us in one of our communal dining areas, our on-site tea room, or even if they’d prefer to enjoy their meals in private, just know that each and every one of our guests is an honorary member of our family.
