Our nutrition program provides selective menus featuring fresh and nutritious meals. You will be provided with regular, well-prepared, nutritious meals as ordered by your physician. A consulting Dietitian is contracted by the center to oversee all menus and diets.
Allegiant Healthcare offers individual medical nutrition therapy and group nutrition under the direction of our Registered Dietitian. Programs are designed to supplement each client’s own life whether they are looking for weight management/weight loss, or nutritional management for the prevention/management of cardiovascular disease and diabetes.
Our Registered Dietitian may also work with clients who have special dietary considerations such as Celiac Disease, food allergies/intolerances, Gastric Intestinal issues and more. Please make your dietitian aware of food preferences and any food allergies you may have.
DIETARY RESTRICTIONS & MODIFICATIONS
Therapeutic diets and modified diets are provided as ordered by your physician. We work with the medical team to provide special diets for those who need them. We work hard to ensure that even pureed consistency foods tickle the taste buds.
PHYSICIAN PRESCRIBED DIET PLANS
Your physician may prescribe a low sodium or low sugar diet for you. We are required to follow your physician’s diet orders. The Center cannot change your diet without a physician’s order. If you do not like the diet your physician has prescribed for you, we encourage you to talk with your physician.
We seek to create healthy menus that accommodate each resident’s particular dietary needs as prescribed by their physician. If you do not see something on the menu that you would like and your physician agrees that it is something you can eat, we will do our best to accommodate you. There are some items that are not on our menu and that we do not serve. Examples of items we do not serve include: kielbasas, hot dogs, unpasteurized soft cooked eggs or dairy products, cost prohibitive items (such as caviar or lobster), home canned or baked foods.
Note: We cannot change your diet without a physician’s order. If you do not like the diet your physician has prescribed for you, we encourage you to talk with your physician.
