Oak Pointe of Rolla provides each Memory Care Resident with choices and options for meals.

Caregivers take orders for each meal & residents join each other in a family-style setting in the dining area to share the meal. To assist our dementia residents in making their meal choices, our caregivers often use our picture menus to help them decide what they want to eat. Caregivers often share the meal with residents providing a modeling opportunity that encourages residents to eat. As resident’s progress through the varying stages of dementia, caregivers may request certain types of foods, for example, finger foods or sweet tasting items that appeal to the resident. To encourage residents to eat, our neighborhood Bistro is set up to offer drinks & snacks that residents can have throughout the day.
