Food and Nutrition Services
Our talented staff prepares home-cooked meals along side our Chef, for both residents and staff. Food is prepared fresh daily with most entrees prepared from scratch while serve is hotel style.
What can we say? We all love to eat here!
Residents eat in the Dining Room, Day Room or Resident Rooms. Home cooked entrees are offered for each meal with current resident favorites like slow- cooked BBQ ribs that fall off the bone, crispy fried shrimp, freshly baked biscuits with gravy and homemade desserts. Special requests from the Cass Cafe’ Menu, hamburgers, grilled cheese, cold salads, grilled chicken or pasta salads, can be ordered throughout the day.
Recipes start with quality meats, poultry, fish and include fresh fruits and vegetables in season. Our chef takes pride in each homemade soup of the day.
Snacks are plentiful and available 24 hours a day. Fruit, puddings, ice cream, small plates, salty snacks, milk and juice are just a call light away. Hot and cold beverages are available 24/7 from the Cafe’. Residents can ask for food or snacks as they please.
We offer Liberalized Diets for Older Adults that are individualized as recommended by the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics (ADA) and the American Medical Directors Association (AMDA), as well as, published in the Journal of American Geriatrics Society. Understanding individuals desires and those certain cravings, our Registered Dietitian and Certified Dietary Manager work closely with the chef to meet their needs. Call it our passion!
The kitchen at CCMCF looks forward to a non COVID future so that we can get back to hospitality cookies or pastries on your way in/out the door, special holiday feasts with families, the Annual Summer Picnic for residents and families. Our department Directors have even been known to travel with trays of freshly baked cookies to many Civic meetings in support of the community. Families will be encouraged to eat with their loved ones again, after the remaining COVID restrictions for Health Care settings are lifted.
What can we say? We all love to eat so no one goes hungry here!
