Dietary Care

Sample Menu

Good nutrition and attractive meals are an essential part of our service. Nutritional goals are achieved through our Dietary Department. Three meals a day plus nutritious snack are provided for residents in accordance with Ministry of Health regulations. Alternate selections to the main entrée are always available and residents are provided choices at each meal.

  • Special and therapeutic diets are prepared according to the needs of the resident.
  • Nutritional supplements and feeding aides are provided if determined appropriate by professional assessment completed in the home.
  • Meal service is offered in the dining rooms, although for residents who may be acutely ill, meals will be provided in their room on a short term basis.

The Food Service Supervisor, StaceyMichiels is responsible for supervising a team of Cooks and Dietary Aids. Menus are assessed by our Registered Dietician, CourtneyBallantyne and are approved by the Residents Council as part of the Food Committee.

Menus are based on a three week rotation and change twice annually in the spring and fall and allow the Dietician to incorporate seasonal items.

All residents admitted to Park Lane are assessed at the time of admission and regularly thereafter, for their nutritional needs by the Dietician. All Dietary Aids hold certificates in Food Handling and many hold Food Service Worker Certificates or are working toward attaining them.
