Alzheimers and Memory Care Dining Experience
Let us do the cooking
Holiday Retirement is dedicated to providing the best possible dining experience for our residents at the level of care they require. The Radiance dining program is tailored to our memory care residents to ensure that they receive a nutritionally balanced meal and a dignified dining experience.
- We aim to maintain a dining room environment with a calm and pleasant atmosphere that feels like home. We strategically place each resident with table mates who offer potential socialization. In addition, we employ caregivers to serve and assist with meals for consistency during mealtimes to promote resident familiarity with our team.
- We offer modified texture meals that resemble the community’s regular offerings, so residents who need special meals receive the same wholesome ingredients in a safe and appealing way.
- Residents with dementia often have difficulty seeing a white plate on a white table with a white napkin. Holiday Retirement tables are set with contrasting colors to minimize these issues.
- To promote resident independence with meals, we offer special service ware that adapts to their needs. This helps our residents maintain independence with eating and drinking, rather than relying on a caregiver to provide assistance.
