Wellness & Nutrition
We provide breakfast, lunch, and snack and beverage services on a daily basis. Menus are updated monthly on the last week of the current month for the following month. All menus are based on a nutrition assessment under the stewardship of the RN with direction provided by the Primary Care Physician as set forth in the Doctor’s Order.
The Gilmore Adult Center is enrolled in the Maryland Nutrition Program which requires a nutrition assessment for all new and existing clients. The nutrition assessment is designed to ensure that each client meets his/her individual dietary requirements for breakfast and lunch (i.e. diabetes, high blood pressure; pureed food, etc.). The Maryland Nutrition program requires us to observe the following:
- Off-menu selections are provided daily
- Milk is a key component to our beverage service
- USDA menu requirements relative to portions and calories
- Point of Service – we are required to record meals served including breakfast, lunch and afternoon snack
We also recently launched a wellness program that is administered by the center’s RN, Medical Director and Subject Matter Experts (SMEs, Occupational Therapy, Physical Therapy, Podiatry, Barbering, etc.).
