TORONTO ON — An audible cheer could be heard inside Orange Acres Retirement Home after it was announced to the residents that they will take part in a new initiative that allows them to choose which meal they will receive every day. They will be guaranteed either breakfast, lunch, or dinner depending on which box they check off at the beginning of the program. While things beyond the home’s control such as staffing levels and whiny residents who need extra attention may make this new program have its glitches, it is hoped that by year end it will be running smoothly. Residents may also receive other meals on any given day but that would require everyone showing up for work, not being tired, and also what kind of mood the shareholders are in for any given quarter. This is just one of many plans in the works for long term care homes but there will be more announced in the coming weeks in an effort to get some good publicity for a change.
