Question: Why is dining important?

Answer

“Let’s talk about the dining experience as it relates to senior care. A lot of folks think when a loved one goes into a senior care environment that they’re going to have hospitallike food. Regardless of whether a resident is on a regular diet, or if they’re on a mechanical soft diet, we want to make sure that we’re following doctor’s orders. 

We want to make food that is tasty, not only to the palate, but also visually. Remember folks, we eat with our eyes! If our eyes are saying it’s good when we make it, chances are our residents are going to enjoy it too.”

Summary

  1. We eat with our eyes

  2. Food should look tasty

  3.  Follow doctor’s orders
