Resident Dining

Peninsula Villages is pleased to have an experienced in-house chef who prepares a seasonal menu for residents within our ageing in place facilities. Our ethos for our menus is based on providing flavoursome, nutritious meals that foster an enjoyment of food by our residents. All meals are cooked on site and prepared daily.

Meals include breakfast, lunch, dinner and dessert, with optional sweets after lunch. Additional snacks, fruit, tea and coffee is also available to the residents throughout our facilities.

All menus are prepared and reviewed by our consultant dietitian and meals are adapted for residents changing needs, allergies or requirements. We also have specific dishes that are gluten free, vegetarian or dairy free.
