Nutrition Resources

In today’s long-term care communities, nutrition is more than just serving healthy food. You have to provide people with the meals and snacks they want to eat, as safely as possible. To help you to do that, we’ve developed resources you can use to reduce complaints, increase positive health outcomes, educate your staff and minimize risks for your community.


Diet Liberalization and Person-Directed Dining

Tips

      • Declaration of Dining Independence – We suggest residents read and sign this foundation document for person-centered dining which outlines the right for control and choice, and also asks residents to accept the responsibility of the consequences of their choices.
      • Tips Sheets for Risks and Benefits of Restricted Diets – These double-sided handouts provide the most current evidence based research on the risks and benefits of restricted diets so that residents can make an informed choice about their dietary preferences.

Forms

      • Staff Survey Dining Services – A QAPI-based data-collection form that identifies gaps in performance of dining services based on the observations of staff members.
      • Checklist for Dining Regulations – This assessment gives you a detailed snapshot to determine if the dining experience is a safe and positive one and whether you are meeting the CMS regulation provided for each survey question.
