Quality of Life for Residents
Quality of life is considered a primary goal for residents, and this directly corresponds with an optimal dining experience. Meal time is important to all of us, and even more important for residents. A good dining experience helps enhance social interaction, build a sense of community and increase nutritional intake – all which contribute to a person’s mental and physical well being.
The Senior Living Dining Experience
Dining in senior living isn’t what it used to be in yesteryears. Today, dining in senior living rivals dining at a nice restaurant. Most importantly, it should be an interactive experience and seniors want to enjoy everything about their meals.
Residents consider meal time to be an activity, and it is a very important part of their day. They look forward to great food shared with good conversation at meal time. A great dining experience in senior living starts with a good first impression. Furthermore, an appealing professional menu display is important to contribute to the overall experience.
Curiosity about lunch, what’s on the menu, and when it will be served, are all questions easily answered without marking up a whiteboard or concerning yourself about legibility. Using menu boards help anticipate upcoming meals and promote conversation among residents.
