Nutrition counts in your recovery! One of the most important aspects of post-surgical recovery that is often overlooked is good nutrition. At Oak Trace Care and Rehabilitation Nursing & Rehabilitation, we provide a Clinical Dietitian who works with you, your family and medical professionals to create individualized meal plans that assure you are receiving the healthy foods your body needs. An effective nutrition program after your surgery is a vital ingredient for strengthening your body and your immune system to assure the most timely and successful recovery possible. Nutrition is an important part of healing and living well.
We can fortify to add calories, alter textures for those that have trouble swallowing, and we have diets to help with weight control or loss. We have a qualified dietitian that meets with each resident to establish needs, preferences and the appropriate diet. Our diets contain all nutrients needed for wound care and optimal healing.
We offer a variety of therapeutic diets such as:
- no added salt
- cardiac diets
- controlled carbohydrate diet
- controlled sugar diets
- renal diets.
At Lindsay Gardens Nursing and Rehabilitation, we are very proud of our dining experience. Delicious, nourishing and appealing meals are served either in a resident’s room or in several dining rooms designed to accommodate residents with individual needs during their stay. Because we know that enjoying delicious food is one of life’s greatest pleasures, our dedicated dietitian meets individually with each resident to customize a nutritional plan, focusing on personal tastes and medical needs.
