Home Cooking

Dining well is one of the great pleasures of life. It nurtures our bodies, our sense of being cared for and cared about, companionship and memories of good times with family and friends. All meals are prepared from basic ingredients in our kitchen. We believe that home cooking helps to make Golden Door feel like Home.

Our meals are prepared under the supervision of our Food Services Manager. Freshness, presentation, smell and taste are integral to the foods we serve. Home made soups, a specialty of the house, are prepared daily and hearten each lunch. Our home baking is warmly welcomed and provides much contentment during meals and snacks.

We serve three tasty, well-balanced meals and three snacks each day. All are designed to provide optimal nutrition and enjoyment. A range of diets are available, and are guided by our Registered Dietition. Working closely with the Director of Care and the Food Services Manager, the Dietition monitors and advises on nutritional care and support for each Resident. Volunteers and staff are available in the dining room to assist people who cannot eat independently.

Resident preferences and choices are accommodated as much as possible. Resident/Family Council contributes to the selection of menus.
