ARBOR TERRACE TO HOLD FREE COOKING DEMONSTRATION HIGHLIGHTING FOOD PREPARATION FOR INDIVIDUALS LIVING WITH DEMENTIA:
Arbor Terrace invites the community to a free Dining with Dignity® Cooking Demonstration, presented by Jim Lee, the Arbor Company’s Vice President of Dining Services.
Jim will demonstrate a new culinary technique that involves grinding cooked food and presenting it in a way that retains the full taste, as well as the texture, consistency, and “five-star” attractiveness of the original dish.
Designed to enhance dining and quality nutrition for residents living with dementia, these menu items have increased weight gain and the quality of life for residents of Arbor communities.
The demonstration will be held next Tuesday, February 28th. from 4:30 to 6:00PM at the ShopRite Supermarket, 178 E. Hanover Ave in Cedar Knolls.
The March selection is "Everything I Never Told You" by Celeste Ng.
