Following a survey of more than 37,000 aged care residents across Australia, a list of the top aged care homes for food has been revealed.

According to The Daily Telegraph, The Greek Community Home For The Aged at Earlwood in Sydney was rated in 21st place for best food for New South Wales. The aged care home is run by the Greek Orthodox Community of NSW (GOCNSW).

The kitchen is operated by chef Panayiotis Giannakopoulos, who is known for serving dishes such as fish and horta vrasta and pork with lettuce and white egg lemon sauce. These are some of the resident’s favourite dishes.

The survey revealed that seven out of 10 residents at the aged care home said they “always” liked the food, while the rest liked it “most of the time.”

“We know if we can get the food right, then we are going to get everything else right,” Katerina Kouris, manager of The Greek Community Home For The Aged, told The Daily Telegraph.

“We don’t have weight loss here, unless someone is unwell. People actually come in and gain weight.”

Ms Kouris added that the facility aims to cater to residents’ tastes, and Greek food is highly favoured.

“It’s all very Greek and the aroma of the food in the dining room is always delicious,” Ms Kouris said.

The Greek Community Home for the Aged was among a quality list of other aged care homes with the best food in NSW, including William Beech Gardens – Bushmaster at Condobolin and the Yeoval Community Nursing Home at Yeoval.

Among the lowest ranked aged care homes for food were Catholic Healthcare The Sister Anne Court Aged Care at Darlinghurst and Columbia Aged Care Services – Willowood Centre at Chatswood.
