Everyone loves and depends on food, nutrition is a basic need for living and sustaining a healthy life, and yet oftentimes we are unable to provide meal options that are nutritious and healthy, as well as deliciously satisfying. For hospitals and senior living facilities, preparing healthy and filling meals for a large quantity of residents and patients can be difficult, especially when you consider the diverse dietary needs and restrictions, allergies, food and drug interactions, and the countless other factors than contribute to the current mediocre meal standards. Our sick and our elderly deserve better than bland and unoriginal cafeteria food, they deserve fresh meals that help them feel good inside and out.
Currently, various pop-up restaurants around the country are working on a better way to do just that. With affordable rotating cuisine, hospitals and senior living facilities are experiencing the highest reports of customer satisfaction to date. In Orlando, pop-up cuisine is becoming an essential part of the Arnold Palmer Medical Center’s, Winnie Palmer Hospital, where meal routines with plenty of diverse and vibrant flavors and ingredients satisfy any patient, staffer, or visitor. It is common knowledge that a person who loves and enjoys the food they are eating is more likely to finish the meal or eat more, and the more a patient eats the better chance their body has to absorb vital nutrients responsible for aiding in their recovery process. People who are staying in the hospital and senior living facility are already under a lot of stress. Many patients have disabilities or other limitations that can make feeding themselves, chewing, or even encouraging them to eat in the first place an immensely challenging feat for the staffers who are only trying to help them get better or maintain their health. The benefits of incorporating pop-up cuisine in your hospital and senior living facility is more than just a simple and popular healthcare trend, it is a method that could soon inspire a complete and total transformation in the way that food and healthcare interact with one another.
