Nutrition places a vital role in rehabilitation. The Eger Food Services staff and the Diet and Nutrition staff work closely together to ensure residents are provided with quality nutritious meals.
The Nutritionists work with each resident taste preference to build their diet and help ensure they are reaching their caloric and nutritional intake. Nutritionists utilize fortified foods, such as pudding and smoothies, to meet residents’ dietary needs.
Each month the Food Service team hosts a resident’s council to go through an upcoming menu to get feedback from residents and sample any new items that will appear on the menu. Eger is constantly working to keep the menu lively, inspiring and is currently implementing a variety of ethnic cuisines.
We are piloting new programs to bring a more meaningful dining experience to our residents. These include an in-unit omelet bar, in-unit sandwiches to order, and an in-unit buffet style dining.
