At Autumn Aged Care, we know how important the aged care dining and hospitality services are for our residents. We are committed to preparing nutritious, home cooked meals with fresh local and seasonal ingredients.
Our executive chef works closely with our kitchen team to introduce tasty and nutritionally balanced options and creates wholesome dishes based on the seasonal offerings in Victoria. We only use fresh produce and where possible limit any frozen and pre-processed food ingredients. We believe that natural whole foods make a wholesome and healthy person. In addition to this, the kitchen team works in close coordination with visiting dieticians to create more specific needs-based recipes for individuals.
The kitchen team encourages our resident gardening clubs to grow organic herb offerings right at home so that residents can enjoy the full lifecycle of the plants and veggies that we consume and have a greater appreciation for the fruits of their labour. Alongside our seasonal menu that consists of hundreds of wholesome meal options, we have an alternative menu to satisfy all tastes.
Dining options are varied and residents can choose between a number of modern light filled open plan dining areas, providing an opportunity to meet friends and enjoy mealtime. Others who would prefer to dine in privacy have the option of requesting breakfast in bed or dinner in their room. We understand that these choices are an essential part of Living well.
Our kitchen team take delight in providing special catering for events such as Christmas and host themed dining events throughout the year as well as regular BBQ’s so that family and friends can enjoy the wholesome home-style cooking we are proud of.
All our residences have fully stocked mini cafés with sandwiches, yogurt, breakfast cereals, juices and tea and coffee stations located throughout the residence for residents and their guests to help themselves whenever the mood takes them. Our social calendars include weekly happy hours and monthly themed celebrations.
