Outrage After Viral Photo of Nursing Home Lunch

Restaurant 449952 1920

A viral photo of an aged care home’s Christmas lunch has sent family and community members into an outrage. A resident of a Byron Bay facility in Australia sent her daughter a photo of her lunch, which included “a helping of partially melted grated cheese on top of a few thin slices of ham, wilted lettuce, and some diced tomato.”

Appalled members in the community found out about the meal after a post was shared in a Facebook group. According to the article, many members “argued that for how expensive aged care living can be, the least staff could do was serve a nice meal.”
