Anthem Care Retirement Village

Lounge & Dining Rooms

At Anthem in our Aged Care buildings, Ascot, Throsby & Retford we have several common areas in the different buildings for the use of the residents, family and friends.   There is a Private Dining room which can be booked at any time for the residents and their family members to enjoy their meals together.  Meals can be ordered through our Kitchen in advance.   Each floor in each of the buildings have their own dining rooms, 6 in total. This makes for a more intermit dining experience for the Residents.   Our Chefs pride themselves on producing fresh homemade meals on a daily basis. There are two kitchens, one for cooked hot meals and the other for the deserts, salads and sandwiches.   Residents are given weekly a menu in advance to choose what they would like to eat each day.   We have a Food Focus group that meets each season.  The Chefs produce new recipes for the residents to try and they decide whether to include them in the next seasons menu.  

Our main meal of the day is at lunch time. See below a taste of the menu that is produced in the Summer.
