Are you or a loved one thinking about moving to assisted living? Rittenhouse Village At Valparaiso is a friendly and warm senior living community that provides a wide spectrum of support with daily living activities that are tailored to our residents’ specific requirements. Residents who require dining assistance can use our services, which aim to make mealtimes as easy and pleasurable as possible.

About Our Dining Assistance

Dining assistance entails a variety of factors, including a resident’s position while eating as well as the type and texture of food they are able to consume. The upper body must be held upright when eating, with the knees and hips as near to a 90-degree angle as feasible. This is done to ensure that food is digested properly, thus lowering the risk of choking. Slip-resistant matting, wedge cushions, and armchairs may be utilized to help residents with positioning.

Furthermore, some individuals may have trouble swallowing or eating. When this is the case, their meals must be altered to ensure that they may enjoy mealtimes safely. Residents with these issues will receive meals and drinks with the proper texture, balancing safety and flavor. When necessary, feeding assistance can be offered.

Benefits of Having Dining Assistance in Your Senior Living Community

Dining assistance is available to our assisted living residents. This service brings about benefits to our residents in the following ways:

  • Encourage a sense of independence by providing residents with the help and resources they need to eat alone
  • Ensure that residents receive the right nutritional balance for their needs
  • Ensure that residents can enjoy mealtimes securely and pleasantly, making it something they look forward to rather than fear
  • …and more!

When Should You Consider Moving into a Senior Living Community?

Making the decision to relocate to a senior living community can be an emotional one. However, if aging in place is no longer a viable option for you or a loved one, making the proper selection will significantly enhance your quality of life. Mealtimes may be made more delightful for older adults with the right dining assistance. At our senior living community, all of the services and amenities you require are included in one all-inclusive price, which can be less expensive than the cost of home care. With in-home care, you must additionally pay for insurance, groceries, utilities, and other expenses in addition to the cost of care.
