We’ve added ZOOMERCISE! to our daily exercise programming in our Integrity Healthcare Communities! Spinning off our very successful “ZOOM! Revved Up Rehab” program, we’ve created an enhanced daily program for our long term residents!
In our patient centered care plans, we make sure that every single resident has something specifically for them in our ZOOMERCISE! group! Every resident is different, so if all they can do is squeeze a stress ball, that is what we help them do … but if they are capable of doing side circles with their arms, then that’s what we do! We engage our residents as we provide individualized Care You Can Trust!
The quality of our food service is very important. Our residents may have diminished appetites and may need additional vitamins to safeguard aging bones, but they still want food that looks good and tastes good.
Our residents have individualized care plans. Our teams of staff look at each person in our care, and they evaluate their specific needs. If they notice that a resident is losing weight (or gaining too much weight), they will adjust their dietary intake. Of course, they monitor closely the amounts of food and beverages each resident consumes, and if they aren’t eating or drinking, they assess the problem. Occasionally, that assessment reveals something as simple as the fact that the resident doesn’t like the way some of our food tastes. Typically, we identify factors that are more complicated … but we always address the issues.
We like to lure our residents to our dining rooms with aromas of delicious food cooking away in our kitchen. We like to plate colorful food that glistens and whets their appetites. The last step, for us, is to serve food that is delicious!
We like to have popular foods such as pizza or stir-fried vegetables. We like to give our residents a choice in menu planning, and comfort food remains their favorite. Gravy over mashed potatoes is at the top of their list!
Providing really good food is another way we provide Care You Can Trust!
