Legato Living has developed four seasonal menus that consist of three nutritionally balanced meals including a morning, afternoon, and evening hydration and snack program.
Each season’s menu has been patterned to use foods that are available in that particular season to ensure quality and freshness.
Because of our home environment, our kitchen is always open. Our Residents are able to have a glass of milk or juice or eat a piece of fruit or other snack at any time. Has your loved one’s food preferences changed over the years? No problem! The small environment is perfect as we easily add their favorites to our grocery list to always have on hand!
Food preparation and storage shall always be done with the utmost care to assure the Residents health and safety. Preparation for each meal shall consist of appropriate portions for each Resident and Caregiver. The nightshift Caregiver may prepare a meal to ensure that the food is ready at mealtime. An example of this is preparing a pot roast and vegetables in a crock pot so that the next day it is ready for the noon meal.
Modified diets are also available for those residents having swallowing difficulties. In this instance, meals may be pureed and liquids can be thickening if specified by the physician.
