Residents in the Jacaranda wing are permitted to cultivate and maintain small garden plots adjoining their rooms and tend to their own pot plants (we ask that all pot plants in Resident's rooms have a saucer or protection underneath).

Meals are planned on a rotational basis and special dietary requirements are catered for. The menus are endorsed and reviewed by a Dietitian. Resident’s likes and dislikes are always considered. Barbeques and social gatherings are organised to give variety. Touriandi Lodge has an effective food safety program in place which is endorsed by an independent certified consultant and is licensed to service meals to ‘Vulnerable people in the Community’. We operate under the guidelines of the NSW Food Authority with audits conducted by this authority annually. In line with our requirements to meet standards families/visitors wishing to bring items of food into the resident need to speak to staff to determine the most effective manner in which to transport these items.
It is necessary at all times for families or representative to inform Staff when a resident chooses to be out for a meal or away from the facility for a period of time.
A fruit basket is available to residents at all times located in the dining room.
