In support of our Mission Statement, the goal of the Nutrition Services Department is to provide wholesome nutritious meals to our residents, family members, clients, staff, and volunteers.
The Nutritional Services Department focuses on individual needs and quality services for the residents in a pleasant environment. This is an integral part of the total health care service here at Friendship Health and Rehab.
Our registered Dietitian and Food Service Manager coordinate and supervise all meal preparation. Attractive, tasty meals are an essential part of our service. Nutritional goals are set for individual residents based on needs and food choices. Three (3) well-balanced meals are served daily to each resident. We also offer a nutritious snack between meals. Alternate selections are available and residents are made aware of the choices at each meal. Each resident is offered the opportunity to fill out a select menu for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.
We offer special and therapeutic diets that are prepared in accordance with doctor’s orders. Nutritional supplements are also available. We work closely with our therapy department and provide feeding devices for our residents if the need arises (i.e. rimmed plates, special cups, built-up utensils). Residents enjoy their meals in one of our beautiful dining rooms.
We also encourage families and friends to share meals with our residents for a minimal charge.
For special occasions, such as birthdays or anniversaries, arrangements for private dining rooms or any of our other larger rooms can be coordinated by contacting the Activities Department.
