Barchester Healthcare’s HELEN MAIELLO asks why more care homes don’t offer substantial evening dinners.

Picture the scene if you will. Some acquaintances have invited you to a very expensive eatery for supper. Even though you ate lunch, that was some hours ago and you are really looking forward to it. You sit down at a very nicely laid table with fresh flowers and linen napkins and look at the menu that is proudly positioned on the table. It reads as follows:

Supper

Starter – Soup/Fruit
