General Services

In any setting such as Springfields the general services provide the smooth running of the whole, to allow us to continue to care for those who stay here.

Food and meal times are an important part of everyone’s day, but particularly to the older generation. Our kitchen provides a wide choice of home cooked food, with the main meal of the day at lunchtime. Much effort is given to menu choice, provision of snacks, fresh fruit, etc. to ensure that residents receive a balanced diet suited to their needs and wishes. Most special diets can be catered for whether for health, religious or personal reasons. Afternoon tea with home-made cakes is a must. The well equipped laundry will ensure that washing is returned normally within 24 hours.

As you would expect with the number of buildings here, maintenance is ongoing. Whether this is general decoration or the servicing of equipment, something is always going on. Of course, residents safety and security is important to us, from fire prevention to general risk reduction. Water here is pre-treated to allow it to be maintained below scald temperatures without the risk of legionnaires, etc. Also given the notorious Essex hard water we ensure that all our supply is softened for your comfort. Housekeeping staff will visit your room as required and will maintain the communal rooms to ensure that the pleasant environment is preserved. The gardens and grounds at Springfields are very important to us, as they provide that unique and picturesque setting that we all enjoy. Putting on the back lawn, a game of croquet . . . we try to make it a pleasant place for the whole family to visit too.
