A fresh and varied menu
Mealtime is an opportunity to provide an enjoyable experience for all our residents. At the heart of this are seasonal menus that use fresh, local produce – including monthly specials, such as Tasmanian scallops.
To ensure that the food we serve our residents remains of a consistently high standard, we’ve formed a resident menu committee to generate ideas and feedback.
As well as delicious food, we’ve also created a series of food-inspired programs aimed at helping our residents maintain independence. We are extremely proud of the special events and culinary occasions we create for those who live with us.
We explore different foods and cultures, holding regular themed meal celebrations. These memorable celebrations are a perfect chance for residents, families, staff and friends to come together, share a meal and enjoy conversations.
