Of all the rituals we human beings have created in our lives, sharing good food with good friends is one of the most important, memorable, and enduring.
The Dining Care Partner plays a pivotal role in making the dining experiences within our community filled with meaning, memory, and relationships. Food should be prepared with care, served with pleasure, and appeal to all the senses. Food and beverages should reflect the preferences of the Elders who live here, with a few surprises thrown in for variety and spontaneity. Spurred by appetite or interest, all should be able to fix, request, and enjoy foods of their choosing throughout the day. If baking cookies at 10pm while watching movies sounds good to the Elders, it happens, just as it does in our own home. The pace of mealtime should be one that celebrates the slow food experience, where local foods are included when available. All who sit to down to break bread together should be so in the spirit of pleasure and joy. In our community, all are welcome at the table when it is time to dine, bringing the Domains of Well-Being into each personâ??s meal experience.
