DINING

WHAT IS THE GRIND DINING SOLUTION?

Grind Dining™ is simply an innovative food services process designed to restore the dignity,
independence, and enjoyment of mealtime for individuals with cognitive, neuromuscular, and chewing
disorders that struggle eating at mealtime. 

OUTSTANDING BENEFITS:

IMPROVED QUALITY
OF LIFE FOR SENIORS
& MEMORY CARE RESIDENTS
EASY TO IMPLEMENT!
INCREASED RESIDENT MEAL INTAKE & SATISFACTION

We come to your establishment and do hands-on training with your staff on how to properly prepare menu items using the Grind Dining technique. No special ingredients required! We provide EASY hands-on training for caregivers on the Grind Dining service standards, specifically for memory care residents, to "Engage the Senses" for those with dementia. 

 

Part of our training is also done on-line.

 

Bringing Back

The Joy Of Dining

"The Grind Dining team provided our staff with the training, skills, and menus needed so that we could offer our memory care residents a new approach to their dining experience. They worked closely with both our dining and care staff so that everyone could appreciate the value of the changes we were making. Our staff is now able to provide our residents with chewing or cognitive disorders, a superb meal that they are able to eat in a dignified way.”

— Freda D. Meyer, Executive Director at Arbor Terrace East Cobb, Marietta, GA
