At Hawthorne Place Care Centre our dietary team takes pride in preparing nutritious and delicious meals and snacks. We recognize the cultural diversity in our home by preparing foods that are familiar to our residents whenever possible.
Our Menu Development Team, composed of our Red Seal Chefs, Cooks, Food Service Managers, Registered Dietitians, Resident Councils and Programs Departments, works together to ensure our culinary services provide the highest quality, delicious and nutritious meals.
Our on-site Registered Dietitians evaluate residents’ nutritional status and plan their nutrition care. They assist in the development of special meals and snacks, make recommendations for supplements, and ensure that the individual dietary requirements of all residents are met.
Residents receive three (3) home-cooked meals each day as well as three (3) snacks / refreshments between meals.
Two (2) entrees are available for residents to choose from at each meal. Should a resident find neither option to their liking, a salad and sandwich of their choice is available. Meal times are scheduled at the same time each day, with flexibility provided to allow for residents to attend any scheduled appointments.
Guests are encouraged to join residents at any meal should they choose. Meal tickets can be purchased by guests from the Home at a low fee.
