Food Appreciation

Our chefs create tasty, freshly prepared meals each day onsite and cater for special dietary requirements and personal preferences.

Our industry-leading Food Appreciation Program gives independence and choice to the residents.

Lifeview’s residents own the menu process. They meet quarterly with the hospitality team to discuss dishes and recipes for the next round of menus, likes and dislikes from the most recent menu, themed menus for special occasions and meal presentation.

Residents also work with our chefs to have their favourite recipes added to the menu, and for those who like to be more hands-on, there are cooking groups offering the opportunity to be involved in the preparation of special meals such as sausage rolls for morning tea or cupcakes for afternoon tea.

The introduction of ‘Parma and Pot lunches’, a resident-driven initiative, has seen broad smiles across all homes and the installation of deep-fryers in the kitchen now ensures our fish and chips are the real deal!

Residents also have a say in what time they have their meals. Our continental breakfast buffet gives late or early risers the ability to continue with their own person schedule.

Special occasions such as French cuisine on Bastille Day, American style hot dogs or hamburgers on Independence Day, a selection of ales on International Beer Day, and pancakes on Shrove Tuesday, are only the tip of the iceberg when it comes to variety and spontaneity on our menus.

Planting with a Purpose

Residents have successfully teamed with our Chefs and Gardeners to cultivate and grow fresh produce for each homes kitchens.

Our award-winning Planting with a Purpose program sees residents involved in everything from germinating seedlings, to planting, tending and harvesting the produce, which the chefs then turn into meals for all to share.
