Nutritious & closer to home: Menu items at a glance

Our philosophy is to first and foremost listen to what our patients and residents have to say about the food we serve, and then create nutritious and appealing meal alternatives that remind them of home.

Menus are different for patients who are acutely ill in hospital from those offered to our residents who live in long-term care. In each setting, across Alberta, we look for variety and nutrition, healthy options mixed with comforting familiar foods, and consider the dietary, religious or cultural needs of patients and residents as we plan our menus.

Here are a few menu favourites for our patients and residents (with photos of actual meals that we serve):
