Country Terrace residents treated to beef tenderloin

Alex Achillini and the nutritional care team at Country Terrace wanted to give residents of the Komoka, Ont. long-term care home a special, memorable dinner, and few meals compare to beef tenderloin.

On Nov. 27, Alex, the Country Terrace nutritional care manager, and his team prepared 150-gram slices of beef tenderloin for residents. The meat was pan-sealed and finished in the oven and then accompanied with gravy.

As for side dishes, the team went with locally farmed root vegetables and made-from-scratch mashed potatoes.

Presenting high-quality meals is important to maintaining a high standard of quality of life for long-term-care home residents, and Alex and the Country Terrace nutritional care team wanted to give residents a meal to remember.

Judging by residents’ comments, Alex says he and the nutritional care team succeeded.

“It was such a great meal, (and we had) lots of compliments,” he tells The OMNIway.
