NUTRITION AND FOOD SERVICES

A registered dietitian assesses all new residents for their dietary needs, and arranges meals to accommodate special diets as indicated, such as diabetic, low salt, calorie reduced, calorie enhanced, pureed, etc.  The dietitian prepares menus that provide nutritional meals in accordance with Canada’s Food Guide. 

There is a four-week cycle menu, which provides a variety of food types, textures, colors and flavors.  All menus are revised at least yearly to enhance variety.  Ethnic and religious preferences are taken into consideration at the request of the resident/designated responsible party.

Meals are cooked on-site and served in the dining rooms in a family dining style as opposed to tray service.  Residents may state food dislikes and will be served a sandwich when they appear on the menu.  Residents may also request a sandwich if they do not wish to eat the meal they are served.  A seating plan is developed in the dining rooms to accommodate residents who need assistance to eat and also to promote socialization amongst residents with common interests.

Meal times are posted on the units.

Nourishment (snacks) and beverages are served in-between meals, three times daily.  Resident satisfaction is monitored daily through the Continuous Quality Improvement Program (CQI).  The dietitian is available for consultation (please call to arrange an appointment).
