Food plays a central role in the daily life of every Scalabrini Village. The act of sharing a meal, often loudly, with family and friends is at the heart of Italian culture. It’s what life, love and family are all about. For this reason we provide the best Italian cuisine and coffee in Australian aged care.
Our eating areas are deliberately warm, homely environments with fresh flowers, natural lighting and daily blackboard specials. We have sunny courtyard cafes for sharing morning coffee and outdoor barbecue facilities for larger family gatherings. Our kitchens specialise in Italian pastas, soups, meats and pizzas and bake delicious Italian cakes and biscotti.
At Scalabrini Village we balance the requirements of aged care standards with Italian traditions. We take food safety very seriously and we are proud of our quality systems and procedures.
We are also proud of our innovations in dementia specific catering, providing ‘snack’ fridges near or inside the dementia wings, finger food options and coloured plates to help residents more easily see the food.
