Dining With Your Family Member

The Nutrition & Food Service Staff prepare, cook and serve a variety of nutritious meals for our elders and community clients. A five-week cycle menu is developed by our Registered Dietitian and meets the therapeutic and texture modification needs of our elders.

View a three-day sample menu here.

Daily menus are posted daily outside the dining room, as well as a weekly menu on the bulletin board outside the dining room.


Family members are welcome to enjoy a meal with their loved one at a nominal charge. The charge for guest meals is $10, and for special occasions $12. For reservations we ask that you notify the kitchen no less than ONE HOUR prior to meal service by calling 250-758-4676, please press "1"and then leave a message with your request for dining. Payment can be made at the front reception desk.


The Dietitian sees all Residents on admission and completes a nutritional assessment, and welcomes any input from family members. Nutritional status and weights are monitored on a regular basis.
