09 Jul Innovations in Memory Care Dining and Service
“Sharing a meal can be one of life’s most gratifying moments, but the joy of dining can quickly be lost for those living with the challenges of Alzheimer’s or other dementias. The right setting and food structure can play a big role toward restoring self-confidence and quality of life.
“In fact, the chance that a resident will continue to try and eat increases if mealtime is made easier and more pleasant.
“Copper Ridge, an Integrace community, serves those with Alzheimer’s and other dementias in Sykesville, MD. It includes an onsite neurocognitive clinic for diagnosis and treatment and an institute for research and education. It is also home to The Bistro, a restaurant adhering to the MIND diet that can help residents and their families rediscover the joys of mealtime, according to Rusty Mitchell, executive director at Copper Ridge. For their dining programs, Integrace partners with Unidine Senior Living Culinary Group.”
