Delicious and Nutritious Food!

Moments Manor Orleans understands that food is a joyful and important part of life! We also understand that proper nutrition is a fundamental building block for overall well-being. At Moments Manor Orleans, fresh and healthy creations are prepared daily by our talented Chef and his dietary staff, with a goal to prepare a variety of healthy meals and snacks without ever compromising taste! Upon move-in, our Food Services Coordinator will meet with the resident and their family to review all dietary preferences and any special instructions or restrictions. This important information is then incorporated into the resident’s individualized care plan. All of our residents enjoy three delicious and nutritious home-cooked meals daily, and a wide variety of snacks and refreshments are available around the clock. We are also very cognizant of the unique dining needs of our residents, utilizing adaptive china dishware that allows our residents to maintain their independence for as long as possible. Water dispensers are located throughout the building to encourage our residents to stay hydrated.

At Moments Manor Orleans, an important element of our programming is to provide small, home-like dining areas on each floor. This allows us to create more intimate and supportive dining experiences for our residents who may require assistance with activities of daily living, such as eating. Our Resident Specialists plate and serve the resident meals, as one family member would do for another family member in their home. Resident Specialists know our residents, their frailties and needs better than anyone else in our communities. Just like a son or daughter, they can make mealtime a comfortable and enjoyable experience.

Please feel free to visit Moments Manor Orleans for a complimentary meal to experience our warm hospitality and delicious food.

It’s Never 2 Late® Cognitive Exercise

Research is increasingly telling us that staying mentally active promotes healthy aging. For those early on the cognitive decline path, a myriad of games and experiences can help keep their brain sharp, and there are multiple research studies showing that brain fitness can help slow cognitive decline. For people farther down the dementia path, multimedia experiences of music and digital imagery can turn agitation and anxiety into calmness and enjoyment.

Symphony Senior Living and Moments Manor Orleans utilize a cutting-edge technology system called “It’s Never 2 Late®”. This computer-based program is used by our staff to engage residents through the use of interactive games, puzzles, visual programming, music, and Internet access. The technology is geared toward the elderly and gives them the opportunity to participate in activities either in a group or one-to-one setting. It’s Never 2 Late® (IN2L) improves socialization and quality of life and can be adapted to each resident’s unique abilities and interests. On any given day, residents can be seen gathered in our lounge areas enjoying trivia games with our staff or visiting faraway places as part of a travel series.

Music and Memory℠ Program

At Moments Manor, we are trained and certified in the renowned Music and Memory℠ Therapeutic Music Program. This simple – yet extremely effective – program allows us to create individualized play lists of songs that can be pleasing, engaging, or soothing to each of our residents. To choose the songs that resonate with each individual, we collaborate with family, friends, and the Designated Resident Specialists. These songs are then loaded onto an iPod and given to our residents for their enjoyment.

The Benefits of this Program Include:

  • Participants are happier and more social
  • Relationships among staff, participants, and family deepen
  • Everyone benefits from a calmer, more supportive social environment
  • There is growing evidence that a personalized music program gives professionals one more tool in their effort to reduce reliance on anti-psychotic medications
  • Reduces agitation and sundowning
We use music to stimulate our residents' memories and help them live in the moment at Moments Manor Orleans in Orleans.
