At Oaks Senior Living, we focus on preparing quality meals for our residents to not only enjoy, but also include the right nutrients and ingredients to promote healthy living. For a long time the food pyramid has given us a look at a balanced approach to the foods we should be consuming daily. Not everyone has the time to reread the pyramid and build an active schedule to follow but also risk serious health issues such as malnutrition. Especially for our aging loved ones in senior living communities it’s important to eat the right foods to stay focused to maintain an active lifestyle!
As we are well into 2016, we would like to take a few minutes to reflect and give an online shout out to our 2015 employee of the year. Oaks Senior Living caregivers do a tremendous service for our loved ones and so we will continue to recognize their work.
