  3. CE Workshop: Meals Matter: The Social Aspects of Food and Nutrition in Eldercare
    The 80th Street Residence 5:30pm-6:30pm Networking & Refreshments 6:30pm-8:00pm CE Workshop
    Nutrition is about much more than food, and that importance increases as we age. Food is almost always shared, and eating meals together with loved ones or friends at home or in eldercare settings can remain a deeply meaningful part of life. This presentation will discuss how a person’s experience with food over their lifetime can be symbolic and will also include other factors that may influence eating behaviors in the senior population. We will examine the nutritional and social aspects of dining and discuss specific ideas for creating inviting dining experiences based on CompassCare’s unique service excellence philosophy. Best practices will be shared from geriatric and hospitality research at Cornell University.
