Does a memory care community’s dining program make a difference for my loved one?
Both nursing homes and memory care communities provide three daily, nutritious meals to their residents. However, only memory care communities specifically design their dining programs around the needs of residents experiencing memory challenges. Memory care communities use brightly colored plates, which studies have shown to stimulate appetite and increase food recognition. Additionally, standalone memory care communities will often incorporate food that is known to be “brain healthy” in their dining experience.
