A Registered Dietitian visits you to conduct an initial nutritional assessment when you first enter the Home. Based on this assessment a nutritional care plan is developed with you and monitored on a quarterly and annual basis. You can request a visit from the Dietitian through the nurse in charge.

Due to space limitations, family and friends are asked to use the Neighbourhood Gathering Room or the small Family Dining Room if they wish to join you for a meal. Residents and their guests are also welcome to use the Cafeteria on Level 2 at any time.
Vending machines are available in the Cafeteria and adjacent Hall. Food and Nutrition Services also provide catering services.

To ensure safety and maintain dietary needs, please do not share your food with other residents.
Resident Home Area kitchens
Home-like kitchens are located on each Resident Home Area for use by residents, families and friends. Each kitchen is equipped with a refrigerator, microwave and toaster. Families may bring in their favourite family recipes for their loved ones ensuring they are labeled with the resident name and date of preparation and are consumed within 48 hours. Items not labeled correctly or past 48 hours will be discarded to ensure food safety.
For safety reasons we ask that this food not be shared with other residents. Should you wish to bring in food to share with other residents, we ask that it come from a commercial grade kitchen (e.g. Restaurant or bakery) in order to ensure safe food handling and preparation.
