Menu and Mealtime Review Program - Expressions of interest

The menu and mealtime reviews provided under this program are free and confidential. All residential aged care services are eligible to nominate their interest in the program, although places are limited.

To complete an expression of interest you will need to know:

  • the full name of the approved provider
  • the approved provider NAPS ID and contact details (name, phone number, address)
  • the residential aged care service(s) NAPS ID and contact details (name, phone number, address).

Other information

The expression of interest process will close on 10 May 2024. We will advise when the next round will be undertaken (dependent on availability).

The program will prioritise nominations for:

  • aged care services in small rural towns, remote communities and very remote communities
  • residential services under the National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Flexible Aged Care Program
  • smaller residential services (with 60 or less residents)
  • services with a score lower than 3 on the Residents’ Experience Survey question, ‘Do you like the food here?’

Approved providers will be advised of the expression of interest outcome by the end of May 2024.

The organisations delivering the services will liaise with successful applicants to schedule and conduct reviews. 

On completion of the review

The service will receive a written review report and any recommendations from the accredited practising dietitian and a feedback meeting to support continuous improvement.

A review summary report will be completed by the attending accredited practising dietitian and provided to the Department of Health and Aged Care which will be used for policy development purposes only.

The participating residential aged care service will be asked to complete a short online evaluation survey to help us to assess the usefulness of the program. Services may complete this survey anonymously. Survey responses will not be published or provided to third parties outside of the department or the Commission.
