Abbey Place experienced some fine dining in a challenge set by Unilever for the homes. Unilever is a nutrition, hygiene and personal care specialist company and has been working with Larchwood for some time to implement the highest standard of care.

A long table was set up in the lounge of the home with bottles of wine and candles to create the atmosphere of a restaurant for the residents and their guests and a delicious meal was served up, including a fresh strawberry cake with a thick layer cream in the middle and vanilla ice-cream on the side for dessert.
