Meals are provided from the St Vincent’s Private Hospital Catering Department.

Menu plans take into account individual preferences, special dietary needs, likes and dislikes.

All menus are planned under the guidance of a dietitian, and there is a choice of menu.

You may choose to complete a menu card from which your menu will be prepared by the diet aid or make your own selection by completing the 2 week rotating menu selection.

Menu choices may be altered at any time by contacting staff.

Families and friends are welcome to join residents for a meal.

You may choose to have a full meal or just sandwiches and sweets.

Friends or relatives may also bring a meal to share with residents if they wish.

Relatives are welcome at any time to assist residents with their meals.
