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 from scratch while service is restaurant style.
What can we say? We all love to eat here!
Residents eat in the newly remodeled dining room. 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 and gravy and homemade desserts. Special requests from the Always Available Menu, hamburgers, grilled cheese or baked potato can be ordered throughout the day. Families are encouraged to eat in the Dining room or Cafe’ with their loved ones.
Recipes start with quality meats, poultry, fish and include fresh fruit and vegetables when in season. Our Chef takes pride in each homemade entree, soup, and dessert 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 get what they want, when they want it.
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 each resident’s needs. Call it our passion!
The kitchen at Cass County Medical Care Facility offers hospitality cookies or pastries on your way in the door, special holiday feasts, the Annual Summer Picnic for residents and families, weekly BBQ’s in season, collaboration with civic groups and catering to our Ladies Auxiliary for their Annual Spring and Fall Luncheons. Our Department Directors have even been known to travel with trays of freshly baked cookies to many Civic meetings in support of the community.
No ones goes hungry here!
