Delicious, nutritious dining makes retirement living even better

Good nutrition is an essential part of our day-to-day well-being, and that doesn’t change as we age. In fact, as we enter our golden years, the need for a healthy diet is even more important as we face more nutritional challenges than ever before.

These challenges can include our body not absorbing nutrients as well as it did and our activity level decreasing, as well as changes to our metabolism and an increase in medication consumption.

Seniors in Victoria’s retirement community The Wellesley know all about the importance of good nutrition, as they experience it every day with Executive Chef Connie Young Davis.

One of the many benefits of moving to retirement living is having the option of home-cooked meals every day without lifting a finger.

The Wellesley has catering at the forefront of their community, and offers delicious dinners that make retirement living that much better.

A reputation for delicious meals and quality service

“As residents of The Wellesley for the past five years, we have greatly appreciated the quality and the variety of meals,” say Howard and Lois. “We have never had trouble finding something delightful to eat. The problem has been making just one selection.”

It has always been Young Davis’s goal to make The Wellesley residents feel like they’re enjoying all their meals in the comfort of their own home.

“Our reputation for tasty, quality meals and excellent service is well known throughout Victoria. I want all meals to look colourful, fresh and appealing to the eye as well as the appetite,” says Young Davis. “A successful dining experience begins in the kitchen and concludes with a delicious meal served by our friendly, experienced staff.”

Residents Angie and Gordon agree that the food is one of the things they thoroughly enjoy about retirement at The Wellesley.

“One of the highlights of living in this delightful place is the food. The menu is varied and constantly changing,” they say. “The chef chooses fresh local fruit and vegetables in season, and all meals are prepared on-site. Holiday meals are delightful as the staff go above and beyond to make the experience feel warm and special.”
