Food as Medicine

Foods for those with dementia and memory impairments

A meal from The Rose of Poway

Food can be a powerful force in the lives of those with Alzheimer’s and other memory impairments. We use snack and meal times, for our residents here in Poway, to promote healthy habits for the mind and body. Snack time means a healthy protein shake daily as a supplement to our daily fitness routine. At mealtime we play relaxing music and try to facilitate conversation. In addition, our dementia residents are given many opportunities to voice their power to choose the foods they want! We believe no matter what stage of Alzheimer’s a person is in, they still deserve a choice!
