Our dietary department is led by Eileen Murray, the Nutrition Manager who supervises a team of cooks and dietary aides to provide well-balanced, nutritious meals for all residents. The menus are approved by the Registered Dietitian and Resident Food Committee before being put into use and they are updated twice per year to take full advantage of seasonal items. All dietary staff have received their Food Handler’s Certification and several of the cooks have achieved their Cook’s Level 1 Certification or higher. We feature a home-style cooking made fresh in the home, and any special dietary or cultural needs can be met. Meals are served in our two dining rooms with supervision and assistance provided as needed. Refreshments and snacks are also provided in rooms throughout the day.

Food Committee

This meeting follows Resident’s Council and allows the dietary department to communicate with residents as a group to gain input into menus, snacks and special events. All menus are reviewed and approved by this group before they are put into place.

These meetings are held monthly and all residents are encouraged to attend and express their concerns and or suggestions.
