More Than Just Good Nutrition

Daily Choices

We want to see that daily meals are a culinary delight and we offer a superior range of choice, including a choice of 2 hot meals for breakfast. At lunchtime there is the choice of three different hot meals, and then two more for dinner as well as the option for a smaller meal.

Alfresco Dining Experience

Your taste buds will be pleased to know we offer a monthly Al Fresco Dining experience with a 3 course meal served while you enjoy some live entertainment and a glass of wine or an ice cold beer. This is at no additional cost to the resident, but bookings are essential!

Share a Special Meal

The Special Meal program has been designed to allow residents a special treat, where they enjoy their favourite meal. Under this scheme four residents per week are selected at random and have the choice of absolutely any type of meal they want to enjoy. They also get to invite a friend or family member to come along as a guest to share the experience. Again, this is at no additional cost to the resident.

High Tea

If an afternoon of delicately prepared sandwiches and assorted sweets is more your cup of tea, each low care facility and each high care unit enjoys a specially prepared High Tea every month.

 

Men’s Shed / BBQ Days

Every month we put a special emphasis on gathering the men who live at OLOC and cooking a BBQ and creating a social atmosphere with entertainment, games and even Men’s Health initiatives. All male residents are invited to these BBQs, and we also have a monthly Men’s Outing.

 

Café Assisi

Café Assisi is our onsite café, which caters to residents and their guests, as well as staff. Being located outside the Administration building and across from the Wellness Centre, it is a perfect place to enjoy a cappuccino and slice of cake or gourmet sandwich while watching the world go by. You and your guests can even order a picnic hamper to be picked up and enjoyed anywhere on our beautiful grounds.

Well-being Initiatives

We want to improve each resident’s sense of well-being regardless of the health challenges they may be experiencing. We do this in the following ways:

  • We focus on residents’ physical comfort and freedom of movement, minimising pain and maximising independence;
  • We encourage residents to stay connected and engaged with people and interests;
  • We focus on residents’ emotional and spiritual wellbeing, seeking to minimise levels of depression and help residents to find a sense of peace.
