Variety is always on the menu at our nursing homes.

Dining with McKenzie

Every mealtime is an occasion at our McKenzie communities. Committed to providing choice and variety, our meals are made in house by dedicated and trained staff, supporting local suppliers and growers to provide the very best dining experience for every resident.

Our seasonal menus are designed in consultation with industry leading Dietitians, and with the feedback and input from our residents. We ensure there is choice and variety at each meal service. We also cater for special dietary and Cultural needs where appropriate.

Quality food and dining play a large role in our McKenzie homes, and we include fun food experiences within our Lifestyle program. Our Lifestyle team coordinate many activities which include Happy Hour, Cultural days, BBQ’s and many more where food is a central part to these fun and social occasions.

Our independent dietitians audit is available for download below, as well as our current seasonal menu.

Your choice to enjoy life your way

At McKenzie Aged Care our residents choose what their day will look like. Residents can choose to stay as active as possible by participating in our varied and creative activities or choose to relax which may include walking in the garden, reading a book or attending a concert at the home. Our lifestyle activities are always focused on keeping a resident’s mind and body active, while providing an important opportunity for social interaction. Our programs may vary between each community because we listen to the feedback from our residents and tailor each lifestyle program to their specific interests and hobbies.

Spirituality plays an important role in our homes. We offer traditional religious connections, including but not limited to, church services which are held in-house catering to many denominations, communion and bible group meetings. Residents may engage in spiritual activities that facilitate meaning, connection and add value to their life which can be achieved through prayer, meditation and relaxation techniques to highlight just a few.

At McKenzie Aged Care, we recognise the importance of resident choice and our lifestyle programs aim to deliver activities that everyone can enjoy. All of our homes have an active Facebook page where we share what the community is up to in addition to providing an opportunity for residents and staff to connect.
