Elderly Care
Feeding the body, mind and soul

Eating well is a lifestyle that embraces colourful food, healthy food choices and enjoying the food we eat. For seniors, the benefits of healthy eating include increased mental acuteness, resistance to illness and disease, higher energy levels, a more robust immune system, faster recuperation times, and better management of chronic health problems. As we age, eating well can also be the key to a positive outlook and staying emotionally balanced.

A balanced diet and physical activity contribute to a higher quality of life and enhanced independence as you age.

Our retirement facilities:

In order to ensure the effective delivery of good nutrition in our retirement facilities, a team-based approach is essential. Caterers, kitchen staff, dieticians, nurses, health-care workers, doctors and porters all have an important part to play.

Clinical dietetic service:

To ensure optimal nutritional status when receiving a normal healthy balanced diet or a modified or therapeutic diet, for e.g. diabetes, high cholesterol, high blood pressure, gastro-intestinal problems, enteral feeding etc., a registered dietician will do a complete nutritional assessment and intervention plan. This will include a tailor-made dietary plan for improved diseases management and health outcomes.

Healthy balanced cycle menus:

We all appreciate that the nutritional and therapeutic value of food not eaten is nil. We therefore provide cycle menus that are:

  • Carefully planned by a registered dietician to provide a variety of foods and tastes, as well as incorporating seasonal changes
  • Adhere to healthy dietary guidelines and recommended daily intakes for seniors
  • Nutritionally analysed to ensure adequate macro- and micronutrients
  • Of high quality, which will result in more food being eaten with all the resultant benefits to health
  • Prepared by trained kitchen staff to ensure a high quality
  • Continuously evaluated and adapted

In order to ensure the effective delivery of good nutrition in our retirement facilities, a clinical dietetic service is offered by a registered dietician, supported by a catering team and fully equipped kitchen. A complete nutritional assessment and intervention plan, which includes a tailor-made dietary plan and healthy balanced cycled meals, ensure that improved diseases and health management outcomes are achieved.
