Assisted Living Facility Provides Nutrition and Meal Planning for the Elderly
Fairfax, Virginia ( ) December 26, 2016 - Cobbdale Assisted Living is providing top-quality assisted living for seniors with an industry-leading focus on nutrition and meal planning. Nutrition for the elderly is of critical importance, both for keeping residents healthy and improving quality of life. Cobbdale offers a holistic, resident-centered care model that prioritizes high nutrition standards. Cobbdale posts daily and weekly menus in advance to keep residents updated, and works to encourage and incorporate feedback from residents to better cater to their tastes. Fresh and seasonal ingredients are used in all meals to provide the best possible quality. Dietary restrictions and preferences are taken into account by staff preparing meals to make sure each resident gets both what they need and what they want.
Cobbdale's Fairfax, VA assisted living facility has recently been completely redesigned and renovated from the ground up. This renovation includes a newly designed kitchen that fosters community by allowing interaction and resident engagement during meal preparation. This improvement is just the latest example of the top-tier amenities at Cobbdale Assisted Living that are staple of their resident-centered model. Other features include a single-story facility custom designed to allow easy movement and navigation by residents. They have only single-occupancy bedrooms with private bathrooms, and all rooms also have a nurse-call system with telephone, television, and cable hook-ups. The floor plan is open and includes beautiful outdoor space with a spacious living room, dining room, and communal areas.
Cobbdale's vision of holistic, resident-centered care is what drives their round-the-clock service and attention to detail. In addition to a wide range of recreational and social activities, Cobbdale provides medication management, nutritional and meal planning, coordination with medical professionals, and support for "Activities of Daily Living" (ADLs).
Cobbdale also provides an extremely high level of personal care to their residents. They have a 3-1 staff-to-resident ratio, far exceeding that required by Virginia regulation. Cobbdale is home to an experienced and highly capable staff, including a team of certified nursing assistants (CNAs) and support staff led by executive director Joey Lynch-Flohr. Their relatively small size allows them to personalize care in a way that is not often possible at larger facilities. Quality of life is at a premium with a wide range of group and solo activities each day.
Cobbdale Assisted Living was founded with the goal to create a warm, personal and exceptionally competent assisted living facility in Fairfax, VA. Executive director Joey Lynch-Flohr was inspired by his own family's experience with finding assisted living for his grandmother and wanted to ensure other families have the best possible care for their loved ones.
