How to Set up a Dining Room at the Nursing Home for Dinner
Set up your cart.The first thing that must be done is setting up your cart to take into the dining room. The first thing that you do is set up your glasses, plastic glasses, cloth napkins (unless otherwise stated), and silverware.
Head to the ice chest.The next thing you do is take your cart of things over to the ice chest. Here, you’ll fill up your glass cups with ice for their water (the CNA staff takes care of the other drinks), at least halfway.
Take your cart to the juice bar, and fill the glasses up with water.Leave at least half an inch of space between the water and the rim of the cup, that way we can try to avoid any unnecessary spills.
Head into the dining room.You start going from table to table, first placing a napkin down, putting down a knife, then fork, then the spoon, and roll it up nice and tight, so it looks neat, not sloppy. Then, you ask the resident if they would like water, if so, give them their water, and any extra glasses they may need for other drinks (i.e milk, juice, tea).
Get your cups straight.Some residents may need special cups. Some people, make need to use plastic cups, because they are a lot less heavy than glass cups, so they can hold them better, or, they need help with being fed, and drop things easily, so this way, nothing breaks.
Know your tables.Most of the time, the residents are seated within a certain group. Most however, sit with whoever they want. There may be a table for choke risk’s, they will be the people that the CNAs and nurses need to be closer to, just in case of any accidents. The other types of tables, (where the CNAs will more than likely be unless needed elsewhere) is the “feeder” table. These are people who need a little extra help eating, or just need to be fed.
Remember that Dinner time, is dinner time.This is the part where you go from table to table, serving them their dinner. This can sometimes get complicated, but some residents may not like what you are having for dinner than night, and may start a problem. The best way to avoid this is know what your residents likes and dislikes are, and if need be, offer alternatives, if alternatives are not already provided.
Understand that this is their dinner time.The residents like to have fun, and they like to feel like they are welcome, and it’s THEIR home. Be respectful to the resident, help where needed, and give the resident what they need. However, it is okay, and well recommended to have fun with them. They love it when you’re having fun, joking, and laughing around with them.
