Life Happens in the Kitchen



Learn about the innovative dining possibilities that can be options for all types of nursing homes regardless of where they are in the Culture Change process: Traditional, Transformational or Neighborhood. Written by Linda Bump, former administrator of Bigfork Communities in Bigfork, Minnesota and of Meadowlark Hills in Manhattan, Kansas, Registered Dietitian and Master of Public Health, this workbook is divided into three sections. Different dining styles and the facilities that have implemented them are featured throughout the book.

Beginning with the small steps the Traditional Home can take to begin to build the relationships and community that will support Culture Change, all the way through the systemic changes that need to take place to truly create Home, "Life Happens in the Kitchen" is full of practical advice, specific ideas, recipes, and photos that will help you on you way to providing a quality dining experience.
