Open Dining Implementation Guide

by / Monday, 12 March 2018 / Published in All Resources, Documents



Long-term care communities have a long history of institutionalized dining characterized by rigid meal times and limited choices. This Open Dining Guide was developed by Planetree International to support organizations in assessing how resident-centered their approach to open dining really is, and to identify opportunities for better aligning structures, practices, and culture around the open dining process more generally. The Guide features an open dining self-assessment tool, team activities to engage all members of the community in being a part of the shift to open dining, and a step-by-step implementation plan.
