It’s all about choice and sharing meals with family and friends. Here is some of what you can expect with the food & dining at CraigCare
At CraigCare, we mix the old favourites with the new. From bangers and mash or fish and chips to creamy oat porridge with banana and cinnamon or braised chicken, red onion, apricots and lemon thyme with white bean puree. Tell us what your favourite meals are and we will be sure to do our best to include this in our ever-changing menu.
We run food focus groups with our residents at each of our homes to understand their likes and dislikes and favourite dishes.
We have our in-house dieticians to guide on nutrition.
All our menus are endorsed by dieticians and each meal is nutritionally evaluated.
We seek advice from industry leading chefs and cooks in aged care such as Maggie Beer’s recipes for residential aged care.
We respect the many different cultural backgrounds of our residents and ensure our menus reflect this through Italian and Chinese dishes served regularly, for example.
We are also more than happy to accommodate individualised meal plans for our residents with specific dietary requirements.
Across all CraigCare homes we offer food molds for residents who are on texture modified diets because of swallowing difficulties.
These meals are beautifully presented; as we all know food presentation is the key to pulling all five senses into the experience of eating.
We welcome and encourage family members to join their loved ones for a meal.
There is only a minimal cost involved in this.
Many of our residents enjoy a wine or beer with dinner or a sherry or port after dinner.
They’ve always done this before so why would they want to stop now?
At CraigCare, our residents choose where they would like to have their meals.
They can choose to have their meals in the main dining room, delivered to their room or another location within the home (e.g. the gardens or outdoor areas or verandas).
Only high-quality and fresh ingredients from accredited suppliers are used.
Our food and dining service consists of breakfast, morning tea, a hot lunch, afternoon tea, a hot dinner with dessert and supper. Fresh fruit, yoghurt and snacks are also available 24/7.
