Food is one of the joys of our world and we celebrate it each day.
Regina Lutheran Home follows a 6-week menu cycle which is updated periodically. Our staff know the Elders very well, so if Elders have preferences besides the items offered that day, they will prepare them based on the Elder’s preferences. Our approach to therapeutic diets is quite liberal, but where there is a need to respect texture, allergies, and or clinical needs, it is strictly met.
Breakfast is a wonderful time at Regina Lutheran Home. Our relaxed breakfast enables Elders to get up as they wake. Breakfast is served from 8:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. The food service staff member in each of the 4 houses makes the meals to order when the Elder arrives. Our hallways are filled with the fabulous aromas of bacon, pancakes, and omelets, just to mention a few possibilities. When Elders need assistance to eat (ie. spoon to mouth, open jam packages, cut up food) it is provided. You hear the sounds of laughter and conversation in our dining rooms as our Elders start their day.
Lunches and suppers are prepared in the main kitchen and transported to the dining rooms at meal times. We have a fifth dining room which serves our tenants from the assisted living suites. Tea is served in the Regina Lutheran Town Hall each afternoon and early evening. This is an opportunity to gather and interact with your neighbors from other houses. Coffee, tea, juices, milk are available with a small snack.
Our menu is adapted to reflect the season’s traditional favorites (i.e. Turkey at Christmas or Baked ham on Easter Sunday) We celebrate the seasons with family dinners and barbeques as food is focal for our many celebrations.
