Expertise to improve your operations and competitiveness

What are your goals? What are your challenges? Struggling with regulatory inspections? Picky residents? Does good nutrition seem next to impossible with shrinking budgets and reimbursement challenges? Are you attracting new residents with person-centered dining and health-conscious offerings?

We solve problems like these for facilities like yours with uncompromising quality. We dive into your culture to better understand the challenges your staff faces while we develop and implement practical solutions.

Nutrition Assesments

Each resident arrives at a facility with individual nutrition needs, but some are so complex or unusual that your facility may need additional expertise to properly serve them. Our team of dietitians and nutrition professionals assesses a resident’s needs and comorbidities to identify the most effective therapies and care plans.

We provide assessments for high-risk situations, such as enteral, parenteral, wound care and hemodialysis patients and develop restorative dining programs to maximize resident intake of calories, protein and other major nutrients. Our on-call dietitian is available to handle questions or requests remotely, as well. We provide off-site nutritional assessments for high-risk residents via fax and email, seven days a week — providing assessments to the facility within 24 hours of the request.

Food Service Management

If you’re looking for ways to enhance efficiency and quality while keeping costs under control, our food service management consultants can help you set and achieve goals through proven strategies and staff training. We perform operational, budgetary and resident meal satisfaction audits to provide an objective view of your team’s strengths and find opportunities for improvement.

We’ll help you increase resident satisfaction as you maintain state and federal regulatory compliance. We’ll also share effective strategies for controlling costs, so you can contend with reimbursement challenges.

Food Safety Compliance

Overwhelmed by the ever-changing local, state and federal rules regarding food safety? Our experts (including some with regulatory backgrounds) will help you take the guesswork out of regulatory compliance. We will prepare you for surveys with pre-survey audits and staff training seminars focused on attaining and maintaining the highest standards.

Our approach reduces staff nervousness about regulations, so they can focus on providing an exceptional experience to your residents. If a situation results in litigation or you face a dietary deficiency turnaround demand, we can provide guidance for a rapid resolution.
