Once common misconceptions and inaccuracies about diet and wellness have been broken down, people are more open to a change of diet. Furthermore, certain underlying conditions and illnesses may require a specific diet or dietary change. Diabetics should avoid blood-sugar level spikes which can be induced by too many sugary foods or carbohydrates, for example.
Adhering to a nutritionally sound diet that works for a resident’s individual health and wellness needs can do wonders. Not only physically but mentally, too. We’ve noticed over the years that many of our clients undergo a change in demeanor once their diets have been “cleaned up”!
Haym Salomon Home for Nursing and Rehabilitation in Brooklyn takes the time to prepare and serve meals that not only look and taste great, but are nutritionally sound as well. We always take the time to explain to our residents why certain foods are good for them and why certain foods ought to be avoided.
We know that when people are provided with nutrition education it helps to make a dietary change that much easier.
