Food Advisory Councils are active at both the Ritz Lutheran Villa and Mitchell Nursing Home which promotes residential rights, autonomy and decision making. The meetings are held monthly at each Home. It provides residents with the opportutnity to suggest menu items, comment on current menus and approve any upcoming menu cycle and to discuss changes and concerns affecting the residents’ quality of life.
Each Home provides three healthy, delicious and enjoyable meals to residents daily. Each meal offers residents a choice off the menu. Snacks and beverages are offered three times a day, between meals and in the evening.
Family and friends are encouraged to enjoy a meal with a resident or a friend in our spacious guest dining room.
There is a full time Nutrition Services Director on duty, as well as a Registered Dietitian who comes to the Home weekly to ensure all Residents dietary needs are met.
