Dining & Nutrition Services
Nutrition and dietary monitoring is an important part of a resident’s holistic care plan. Our registered dietitian serves as a nutrition consultant for the interdisciplinary care team to ensure optimal health and well-being of our residents as well as designing and delivering specific dietary and complex nutrition needs. We provide each resident with a nourishing, tasteful, well-balanced diet that meets the daily nutritional and special dietary needs of each resident.
Customized meal plans to accommodate dietary requirement or restriction, including special diets to help manage conditions such as hypertension, heart disease, or diabetes.
Residents appreciate our well-appointed restaurant-style dining room, where personal table service makes meals enjoyable and often a social occasion.
State of the Art Safety
Safety is a Top Priority
We have multiple prevention methods for the spread of COVID-19 and other viruses. These include routine electrostatic cleaning, needlepoint bipolar ionization (cold plasma), HEPA air scrubbers, and MERV 13 air filter installation. Cold plasma has been shown to kill multiple bacteria, viruses and mold spores, and recent studies have demonstrated a significant reduction of COVID-19 virus when installed.
Partnering With Industry Experts
We developed and implemented industry-leading protocols to help prevent the spread of disease. We partnered with university and community-based epidemiology clinical experts, the North Carolina Statewide Program for Infection Control and Epidemiology (SPICE), while following state and CDC guidance.
Some of Our Additional Safety Measures Include:
Following all guidance and requirements for state and Centers for Medicare & Medicaid (CMS) to ensure optimal patient, family and staff safety
Residents are monitored and screened regularly
Teammates and guests wear masks throughout their shifts/visits when required
When residents have an engaging social life, they’re able to live more comfortably and productively. Activities give structure which provides them certainty in knowing what’s coming up next; time goes by faster and increases a sense of purpose. There’s also something comforting about having people around who care enough to make your days a little more interesting.
