While living in aged care, having a hearty meal can be the highlight of a resident’s day. A good meal can satisfy hunger, lift moods and be a focal point for socialising.
But in aged care, who decides what the residents eat? And how much say do facilities get from those who are eating the meals?
The Lantern Project is about giving aged care residents the quality of life they deserve through good food and nutrition, and through a new initiative, our #LanternLittleThings series, we’re investigating food innovations in facilities all around Australia.
The opportunity to involve aged care residents in planning and running special events presents a number of great outcomes
So here’s the 5th video in our #LanternLittleThings series – the outcome of our recent Lantern Aged Care Food Safari across 8 aged care organisations in Australia. This one is from the beautiful Northern NSW region – Crowley Care Services. Our mission with this series – search for “Little Things” (minimal cost, easy to implement with a demonstrated BIG impact), document it via a short video and share with the world to hopefully inspire other homes to give it a go. We hope you enjoy.
