Quality of food is vitally important to quality of life for seniors. In Minnesota, skilled nursing facilities are surveyed yearly on food enjoyment and mealtime. Many care centers are including food enjoyment as part of a quality improvement project. The MN Department of Human Services gives providers the opportunity to earn additional funds by using quality surveys in quality improvement. PDN is partnering with communities on quality projects. Through menu development, staff training, and resident engagement, we are achieving results and exceeding goals!
