Empowering Through Food, People, and Creativity
At Orange Lily Group, our vision is to create nourished, happy and inspired communities in long-term care. We are committed to improving the quality of life for individuals in long-term care homes by providing innovative, sustainable, and compassionate nutrition services. We believe that by connecting with our clients and residents, acting with integrity, respecting their dignity, and empowering them to make informed decisions, we can make a meaningful impact on their lives.
Our guiding principles are the foundation of the culture at Orange Lily Group. These principles are expressed as the acronym C.A.R.E. which stands for Connect, Act with integrity, Respect, and Empower. By upholding these principles we are able to build lasting relationships with our clients.
Our dedicated team of Registered Dietitians and Food Service Professionals work together to create positive outcomes for the LTC homes we work with. This strong team of nutrition and dining professionals allows OLG to have a high level of productivity, better decision making, and improved creativity, compared to other solutions, ensuring the best possible care and support.
We provide professional dietetic and food service operations support across Ontario.
Food Service Support
Working together with a LTC home’s team, we go above and beyond to provide customized services that suit individual food service management styles and residents’ needs, while focusing on enhancing the culinary and hospitality experience for residents.
Clinical Nutrition Services
Delivering person-centred nutrition services in long term care is our strength and it begins with great mentorship. We invest in our Registered Dietitians through:
- Professional guidance
- Building new skills
We believe in empowering future dietitians. Our participation in the positive transformation of the dietetic profession starts with supporting new and experienced RDs alike.
How We Can Help
Orange Lily Group helps Long Term Care homes across Ontario provide quality care to their residents through several key areas of focus.
Quality Assurance and Compliance Program Development
Our quality assurance program will ensure a high standard of practice, performance and operation for our long-term care homes. We accomplish this by being present, observing, and following structured processes that enable us to identify practices needing improvement. Our years of experience allows us to provide you with diverse strategies to support your home’s compliance with regulations.
Staff Training, Education and Compliance
With our training programs we are prepared to keep dietitians, food service workers, and other LTC home staff up-to-date and informed. We have hundreds of educational resources and are always making new ones. Our staff training, education, and compliance resources can be delivered remotely and in person.
Our goal aligns with the needs of our clients – it is to support and respect residents’ rights and promote the quality of care being provided to meet or exceed the requirements of the Ontario Long-Term Care Act.
We specialize in food service operations and clinical nutrition auditing to help identify and address gaps and develop solutions to support the quality of life of our LTC residents. As well, we understand that our support in auditing extends to our hard working front-line staff and our collaboration with them ensures our care comes full circle. We ensure that that our team conducts audits professionally, respectfully, and diligently, as we know this is our residents’ home.
