Success and Satisfaction

Happier, Healthier Residents

We have done our research. Good nutrition dramatically improves quality of life.  Based on InterRAI clinical assessment data we know that our nutrient-packed purees are associated with positive clinical outcomes and a dramatic increase in positive wellbeing of residents.  The data shows that residents eating Pure Foods are 64% more likely to rate themselves in good or excellent health (September 2019 aggregated InterRAI clinical assessment data) than prior to eating Pure Foods.  Even small amounts of our purees will help people get the nutrition they need to live their best lives.

7 Rules for Great Dining Experiences

Full hearts...

Mealtimes can be stressful and isolating for people with swallowing difficulties. They may feel anxious about choking, or frustrated by how long it takes to get food down, and by their inability to be part of the conversations happening around them.  Dr Anna Miles, a lecturer and clinician specialising in swallowing disorders provides her thoughts on how to enhance the dining experience for even the most vulnerable diners.
