The following was discussed: Residents have requested that all staff wear name badges as a way of putting a name to a face. At the start of each shift, could care workers knock on residents doors and introduce themselves. Temperature in House 7 Dining is too cool. Residents do not wish to have the thick winter soups on the summer menu but would prefer to have soups that are light, vegetable broth type of soups. Also with the menus, restrict winter foods to the winter menu and summer foods such as salads to the summer menu. Fresh fruit being offered is too monotonous, mainly rockmelon and watermelon. Requests for bananas, peaches, apricots, strawberries, apples a variety. Residents have requested that the evening cup of coffee or tea should be offered to each resident knock on the door and ask each person if they wish a cuppa. This is seen as a great opportunity for interaction. Some care workers do this but not all. Could this be implemented across the board for each resident?
