Good food means good mood at Coorparoo

For many of us, enjoying our food is more than just fulfilling our hunger, it’s about the experience, the joy, and the relaxing comfort we feel when we eat. For residents at Coorparoo Aged Care, not only do they get to enjoy the delicious and nutritious food from the menu as created by Head Chef, Karl, and the kitchen team, but they also get to help craft the menu so that every meal is catered to their preferences.

Chef Karl is assisted by Chef Ramesh and a fabulous team of kitchen staff. All food is cooked fresh on the premises daily. Along with a choice of different meal options every day, the menu rotates every four weeks, so that there is a variety for residents. Feedback is also welcomed at resident meetings at which Chef Karl attends so that residents can enjoy the best quality food every day.

The menu is annually reviewed by a dietician to ensure that there is a variety of meals with different colours, textures, and flavours.

For Coorparoo Aged Care resident, Marion Henzel, having freshly cooked meals which are also prepared onsite was a large factor is choosing to live at Coorparoo. ‘There is fresh fruit salad available each evening. It is important to ensure we all keep healthy and enjoy our meals,’ says Marion.

‘I find all the meals enjoyable, but my favourites are the barramundi and vegetables and the corned beef with parsley sauce,’ she says. ‘The kitchen also provides lovely high teas and food for special events which are organised by the lifestyle team.’
