The Bistro at Belong Newcastle-under-Lyme is a dementia-friendly café where residents can meet with family and friends and enjoy tasty meals, which are freshly prepared on site using seasonal produce. A range of speciality coffees and teas are available throughout the day.

All team members receive dementia training and a comprehensive induction, ensuring colleagues have a good understanding of the challenges faced by older people and that the bistro is a safe space where everyone is treated with understanding and respect.


Promoting choice

The Bistro also offers an alternative dining experience for 24-hour care residents, who can choose whether to dine in their household, their private suite or pop along to the Bistro for a change of scene.
