At Benetas Dalkeith Hostel we are proud of the delicious, healthy meals we prepare for residents and their guests. Cooks work closely with nutritionists and dieticians to ensure all meals prepared fulfil nutrition requirements. We use fresh produce in all our kitchens and cater to cultural and religious requirements, and aim to please all individual tastes.

Meet some of our kitchen staff

We encourage our staff and volunteers to bring a pastoral sensibility to their roles, to listen to and be truly present to our residents. Our specialist team of non-denominational Pastoral Care Practitioners provide individualised and ongoing spiritual and emotional support. In addition, through our Lifestyle Program, denominational visitors and volunteer companions foster an ongoing connection with our residents’ chosen faith tradition and provide church and chaplaincy services.

Are you prepared for residential aged care?

To be prepared for the move into a Benetas home plus to determine some of the costs for your care and whether you qualify for additional Government funding, you should apply for the Government's Combined Assets and Income Assessment (valid for 120 days prior to moving in). Benetas welcomes people without this Assessment, as you may choose not to apply but instead pay the full costs for your care needs and accommodation.
