Delivering the Happy Table initiative
We’ve partnered with industry leader and accredited aged care dietitian Dr Cherie Hugo and The Lantern Project to deliver Happy Table. Importantly, everyone at Lutheran Services is involved, from the catering team to our dedicated Nutrition Champions and working groups, to clinical staff and personal carers.
We’re collaborating with all team members and residents, as everyone has a vital part to play in creating exceptional mealtime experiences, improving quality of life, and turning the tables on malnutrition.
We have been encouraged, that in its first six months, Happy Table delivered a 20% increase in nourished residents. The combination of initiatives is having a positive impact on the lives of residents. This is an industry-leading approach to reducing malnutrition and improving the dining experience for our residents.
