More About This Textbook

Overview

Discover how mealtimes in long-term care facilities can become richly rewarding, both for staff and residents, rather than a chore to be endured three times a day. Based on a proven mealtime program, Bon Appetit! shows how to restore the simple pleasures of eating to frail, confused or otherwise challenged residents. The authors--a renowned occupational therapist and an international hospitality consultant, who is expert in food and beverage services--offer a comprehensive program that addresses the unique challenges and opportunities presented by adult day service and long-term care settings. The program is an intelligible, beginning-to-end implementation guide that covers: Food selection and presentation Individual resident programming Staff training and support Environmental modifications Organizational change and program maintenance Focusing on principles of resident autonomy and person-centered care, this program provides opportunities for social interaction, activity programming, functional improvements, and sensory pleasures. Special attention is devoted to identifying the needs of those with dementia. Critical assessment tools and a complete training itinerary are among the invaluable aids you'll find. Best of all, there are 72 ready-to-use recipes that provide tasty, nutritious and manageable alternatives to traditional institutional foods. Learn to do more than just keep your residents' bodies alive--you can keep them living with respectful, meaningful mealtimes made possible with Bon Appetit! Start today with your book order!
