What is the public perception of nursing home dining?
Bland, overcooked food? Limited menu choices? An institutional dining venue?
When an individual transitions to a long-term care setting, his or her lifestyle can change dramatically. Suddenly finding himself or herself in a new and unfamiliar setting can cause an older adult to become withdrawn or depressed. Culture change has come a long way in its promise to make residents feel “at home.” Food is the ultimate expression of contentment and community, which is why chefs—not just cooks—have become key members of LTC staffs.
At Regency Nursing Centers, we take our food very seriously and are constantly looking to soothe the soul AND please the palate!
