LTC/senior living facilities don’t market healthy menu items

Operators say it’s hard to change dining habits of older residents.

Fifty-one percent of LTC/senior living facilities do not market their healthy menu items.

Anita Mays, dietary manager at Ridgewood Manor in Maumee, Ohio, says she doesn’t market her healthy choices because her residents—who are mostly older individuals—aren’t looking to change the way they eat at this stage in their lives.
