Our nutritional team takes pride in serving appetizing and nutritious meals. Working closely with the Nursing, Therapy, and Activities Departments, they are quickly able to become familiarized with the resident’s individual preferences and special needs. Having a well-equipped modern kitchen enables us to provide quality foods pertinent to our therapeutic diets. Our services are based on a five week menu cycle that includes alternative selections for each meal. There is also a Rise and Dine breakfast program that offers custom made to order breakfast items. We also have a “yours for asking” menu for lunch and dinner meals and our snack shop which offers an extensive variety of alternative selections and popular favorites.
Although room service is available, clients are encouraged to join their friends in one of our three dining-rooms, snack shop, or Rise and Dine Program.
Our snack shop is open for lunch Monday thru Friday from 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m., and is available to clients and their families. In addition to the regular snack shop menu offering a variety of choices, we also offer daily specials.
The nutritional management team is comprised of board certified professionals utilizing the latest technologies available for therapeutic nutrition support. In conjunction with the clients’ attending physician, we are able to provide the special needs of those requiring enteral or supplemental nutrition. The chewing and swallowing challenges that many of our clients face have necessitated mechanically altered diets, custom designed by our Speech department. Our Registered Dietitian on staff is here to provide medical nutrition therapy and intervention, and is happy to provide nutrition education to promote nutritional well- being.
Our clients enjoy our summer cook-outs in the court yard, along with special events such as holiday buffets. Family members and friends are always welcome to join the festivities. We are also happy to accommodate small gatherings for “special occasion parties”.
