Where Southern Senior Cuisine Puts Smiles On Faces, Reinforces Activity,
and Provides a Healthy Alternative to Bland Hospital-Style Cooking
Favorites Southern Senior Cuisine
by The Pointe Residents and Staff


Melanie Arnold:
Our resident/staff favorites from her presentation was the dirty rice with cranberry raisins and green onion. Also she was the source of the honey BBQ sauce and smoked sausage that Ken Phillips certainly enjoyed. She provided several ideas as to how to spice up our sugar cookies for the holidays.

Amanda Cleghorn: Our favorites from her was a chicken and waffle sticks that can provide up to ten grams of protein for breakfast time which will be a big help when we experience egg shortages. She also provided us with tips on presentation for our Christmas open house, such as mini cookies with whipped topping and apple/cherry pie bites! Her biggest crowd pleaser overall was her corn casserole.

Rod Clair: This was our protein man and he provided us with lots of choices. He had a really flavorful hamburger patty that was pre-seasoned and had a great flavor. His biggest hit was his cube-steak because it was more tender than the ones we usually see and experience. He also offered a lightly breaded southern style chicken tender which is something we have been seeking for a few months. The Quadriciser is a motorized passive/active therapy apparatus which provides residents and walk-ins—who need assistance with movement or are presently unable to walk—with neurological stimulation and a full range of motion the human body needs to remain healthy and mobile.

The Quadriciser simulates reciprocal movements of walking while lying in the supine position. Its cross-crawl pattern stimulates the brain and improves muscle function. The Quadriciser is a total body therapy system that offers a wide variety of therapies to those who are unable to move by themselves. As the user progresses, a more active therapy session may be obtained through simple adjustments of tension, speed, and resistance, thus providing even further results. The Quadriciser is FDA Registered and VA Approved!
