Meals and Food at Bethanie Residential

Eat fresh. Live well

aged care food and meals

Food is a big part of life at Bethanie and we understand its importance to our resident’s well-being. Our fresh, home-style meals and social dining spaces bring pleasure to our residents, by bringing them together, not only to eat, but to share conversation and forge community.

Fresh, honest food is cooked daily by our qualified cooks and chefs with a well-balanced diet in mind. Because fresh is best and packed full of nutrients and flavour, we use local produce where possible and always ensure compliance with food safety and quality standards.

Menu choices vary from salmon steaks to beef cheeks, treacle tarts to bread and butter pudding and everything in between. Menus change regularly to reflect the seasonality of fresh produce and are assessed by a dietician for suitability and nutritional value including recommended dietary intake status.

Special dietary requirements for diabetics, vegetarians, modified diets, thickened fluids, gluten free, and cultural diets are cared for, with regular special events such as Christmas, Melbourne Cup and Valentine’s Day celebrated.
