Food Managment – Senior Dining Trends: Menno Place senior facility to start social distanced communal meals
Like senior living facilities across both the United States and Canada, Menno Place in British Columbia has had to take drastic steps to keep its population of some 700 elderly residents safe from the coronavirus for the past five months. The facility’s success in this can be measured by the fact that it has not seen any infections to date.
The changes forced by coronavirus at Menno Place certainly have impacted the meal service, which used to provide a communal main meal in the middle of the day to its 250 independent living residents and two such meals to its 100 assisted living residents. These would take place in dining rooms where the residents could socialize over their food.
