Here at Glenbridge Health & Rehabilitation, the dietary department offers a wide variety to accommodate different diets and nutritional needs for our Long Term Care Skilled Nursing Home Residents. Daily we accommodate meals for residents who have orders for all different types of therapeutic and mechanical diets. We work very closely with nursing, therapy, as well as family members.
Our dietary staff strives to ensure that all diets get delicious foods that still meet each resident’s specific health needs. We do offer our no added salt residents salt-free alternatives as well as fresh vegetables and fruit. As for our diabetic residents, we offer sugar-free desserts, fruits, and sugar-free nighttime snacks. Our diabetic residents also get offered a variety of sugar-free alternatives such as Sweet & Low, Splenda, etc.
The dietary department also offers many different nutritional supplements for our residents that need extra calories due to weight loss, skin breakdown, etc. Our dietary manager works closely with the wound care nurse for extra nutrition to aid in healing. We also have a registered dietician on site once a month and on-call as needed to both staff and family members. The dietary manager and staff are available to answer any questions or concerns the residents or family members may have.
All dietary staff are trained and educated on all different diets and modifications. The dietary team here prides itself in serving hot palatable nutritional meals for our residents. We strive to make the meals like home cooking something everyone can enjoy!
