New Care Home Launches with Support from BBC MasterChef Winner

Signature at Farnham Common, a new care home, provided an early glimpse of its facilities with the help of BBC MasterChef winner and author Jane Devonshire.

Jane Devonshire, the 2016 winner of the BBC show, provided a full culinary demonstration to the home’s first residents, their loved ones and care teams, which saw her prepare Thyme & Lemon Roast Chicken and Chicken Bon Bons.

It builds on Signature Senior Lifestyle’s partnership with the chef, who co-designs the four seasonal menus that Signature serves each year to 2,000 residents its 37 luxury care homes across London and the south-east.

In keeping with other other Signature homes, Farnham Common will provide specialist residential, nursing, dementia, and respite services which are truly tailored to each individual resident.

Commenting on the home’s arrival, Alex Alexandru, General Manager at Signature at Farnham Common, said:
“The weekend was an excellent opportunity to show our new and prospective residents the pride we have taken in providing luxury care facilities to deliver the care they need.

“Each one of Signature’s care homes is unique and has its own sense of community. This event marked Farnham Common’s first opportunity to present ourselves to our residents who will write our care home’s first chapter and make up our very own community.

“Our thanks go to Jane Devonshire for her continued support, and for giving such a wonderful cooking demonstration!”

Jane Devonshire, BBC MasterChef Winner and author, said:
“It was a pleasure to visit Farnham Common to see the high-class facilities that have been developed, which I am sure will deliver excellent care, as well as nutritious meals which support residents’ tastes and needs.

“Farnham Common is another example of Signature continuing its pursuit of excellence.

Margaret Moore, a founding resident at Signature at Farnham Common, said:
“I am looking forward to making my home at Farnham Common. Today was a nice opportunity to bring together my fellow residents and their families, all while enjoying some lovely food!”
