What makes White Oaks’ Nutritional Services Different?

We Make Meals Fun!

Everything we serve (mostly) is homemade right here in our facility, including soups, muffins and cakes. The food we serve is based on current food trends, and we hold monthly resident food committee meetings to create our menus and get feedback from our residents.

Our nutritional menus promote healing, quality of life, meet our residents’ medical needs and incorporate resident preferences. Care is taken to prepare special, therapeutic diets that meet the requirements for our residents and include therapeutic, consistency modified, diabetic, dysphasia and heart-healthy diets.

We know that every resident is unique, and we take great care to create food plans tailored to their unique needs. Our registered dietician meets with every resident to create an individual diet plan that incorporates their food preferences. Many choices are offered at meals including a choice of two entrees, hot meals, cold options, salad plates and sandwiches. Kosher packs and Kosher style meals are available on request.

Special foods and menus are incorporated into holiday celebrations, Rosh Hashanah, Passover, Easter, Thanksgiving and Christmas, monthly special events, BBQs and social gatherings. Our Food Service team partners with our Therapeutic Recreation department to provide wonderful experiences for our residents with special themed meals, for example, pizza day or Chinese or Greek themed meals.
