What Kind of Food Is Available in Nursing Facilities?Uncategorized
Most nursing homes usually offer at least 3 meals a day to their residents. The upside is that our nursing home residents don’t have to cook or clean, but it may make you wonder if the food is delicious, or at least palatable. Fortunately, the food served in our facilities is not only satisfying, you can also count on special requests being met.
Special Requests Are Met
Many nursing home residents have special dietary needs. For example, some may not be able to tolerate dairy, gluten, or nuts. These needs can be difficult to meet when you’re preparing meals for one person, but in a bigger facility, it’s not a problem. It’s a good idea to talk to our staff about your special dietary needs to ensure that we can accommodate them.
Meals Can Be Served Privately
Sometimes our residents prefer to eat in the privacy of their own rooms, whether that’s because they’re feeling a little under the weather or want to enjoy the company of a close friend. A good nursing home offers its residents the ability to dine in the dining room or wherever they feel most comfortable.
Holidays Are Special
One thing that you should pay attention to is what type of food is served on holidays. Just because our residents are in a nursing home doesn’t mean they don’t deserve a delicious Thanksgiving dinner with turkey, mashed potatoes, gravy, and stuffing. And whether it’s a holiday or not, our nursing home food always includes nutritious and delicious menu items.
