Epicure is the only industry-endorsed software that performs a full 360-degree analysis of a resident’s nutrition and dining experience. Developed by The Lantern Alliance in 2013, Epicure’s proprietary process is a robust 2-day onsite program that can be applied to any aged care setting to assess the quality and process of each dining experience through engagement with residents and staff.
Within 1 week of our onsite visit, you will receive a comprehensive report based on over 5000 touchpoints of real data collected during the visit. Epicure provides powerful insights and strategies that promotes culture change to guide you towards measurable, positive results. Equally important, is the Epicure Rating which clearly shows you how your organisation is performing against the critical and mandatory Aged Care Quality Standards.
The ultimate outcome of undertaking an Epicure analysis of your home’s food service and dining experience is that everyone benefits from the positive changes that are implemented.
Epicure software is not a trendy app, or a piece of software developed overnight in someone’s garage. Epicure was developed over an 8-year period involving 39,000 hours of research with over 7200 participants across Australia.
With 11 research papers published during this time, and our results based on real-time monitoring of residents and staff, the team at Lantern Alliance could not be more confident applying the Epicure analysis process to your aged care homes.
The results we have achieved for our clients is a constant testament to the reliability and accuracy of Epicure. We are more than happy to refer you to some of our satisfied clients.

By implementing changes based on your home’s results, Epicure will guide your organisation towards 5-star performance in the food, nutrition and dining experience space.
