Senior Retirement Residence Kansas City Provides Home Cooking & Healthy Eating

A primary focus of a senior retirement residence Kansas City is to promote healthy eating for senior adults. Typically, some residents at conventional facilities often do not have healthy eating habits, and it can seriously impact people with health concerns. As many as 85% of seniors suffer from malnutrition, which often goes unrecognized and untreated.

Studies on nutrition care for aging adults in residential facilities have identified the most common causes of malnutrition and have found resolutions for better outcomes for elderly adults. For instance, a general disinterest in eating is often due to depression or serious illness. Also, a person with advanced dementia may not remember to eat, while others may be physically unable to prepare meals, or have difficulty swallowing, chewing or lifting utensils.

Clover Care Home senior retirement residence Kansas City pays close attention to each of our residents, monitoring every aspect of their health, and have established protocols in place for preventing and correcting malnutrition, and encouraging healthy eating, such as:

  • We assess each resident’s likes and dislikes and determine their preferred food choices.
  • Our excellent kitchen staff prepares nutritious, home-cooked meals, made-to-order breakfasts and healthy snacks for our residents, including those with special dietary needs.
  • Further, our proactive approach to healthy eating gives residents’ a variety of meal choices; they can choose family-style dining, sharing meals with small groups or dining in their rooms. Family-style dining and group meals allow residents to select which foods and the portions they want to eat.
  • In addition, we encourage family members to join their loved one in our community dining room or take them out to their favorite restaurant.
  • As part of our life-enrichment opportunities at Clover Care Home senior retirement residence Kansas City, our personal cook Laura plans cooking activities that residents can participate in and enjoy while creating healthy, delicious foods.

Dietitian’s and caregivers at Clover Care Home senior retirement residence Kansas City employ specific adaptive strategies for addressing residents’ food concerns on an individual basis, including the type and amount of eating assistance they need, if they require a progressive self-feeding program (if they need retraining in how to feed themselves), and referrals to other health care practitioners if needed.

In addition, we provide snacks and food during activity programs, changing from finger foods that seniors’ can feed themselves.
