Experience. Adelaide.

The Adelaide Dining Experience

Our dignified dining program combines stimulating smells to enhance the senses, a choice of meals and colorful tableware to invigorate the appetite. At Adelaide, residents will enjoy culinary excellence by seasoned professionals trained in experiential dining for those living with memory loss.

• Two beautiful dining rooms with restaurant style service. A unique dining space on each level with an open concept design and various seating options overlooking the courtyard. Each dining room features an open family style kitchen where chefs and associates can conduct interactive cooking programs and visually display the meal choices.

• Our chefs will be incorporating the MIND Diet at each meal. The MIND diet combines the DASH and Mediterranean diets and is aimed at reducing the risk of dementia and the decline in brain health that people often experience as they age. (MIND stands for Mediterranean-DASH Intervention for Neurodegenerative Delay)

• Café Thyme, serving specialty snacks and coffees within a secured area, allows residents and their families an opportunity to take a trip and visit “outside the community.”So what does Adelaide have on the menu?

Nutrition for Memory Loss
Adelaide follows research in nutrition for memory impairment very closely. There are nutrients that have been linked to improving brain health and we include them in the meals we prepare for our residents. These include:

Omega-3: A high intake of Omega-3s has shown a possible reduction in risk of dementia or cognitive decline by reducing inflammation and supporting and protecting nerve cell membranes. Omega-3s can be found in fish such as salmon, tuna, herring and mackerel. 
Antioxidants: Antioxidants remove free radicals from the body which can run rampant and actually damage cells, causing serious illness. A diet full of dark fruits like blueberries and blackberries, and vegetables such as broccoli, spinach, carrots and potatoes are loaded with antioxidants. 
Vegetables and leafy greens:  Spinach, kale, cabbage, romaine lettuce, arugula, and collard greens are nutrient-dense leafy greens that provide vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and fiber. Approximately one serving a day may help slow cognitive decline.
Protein: Protein is one of the three major macronutrients essential for the human body to function well. You can find protein in meat, fish, eggs, soy, milk, beans, and nuts. Studies have shown that brain cells can multiply by increasing protein and healthy saturated fats.
H2O: Seniors can get dehydrated when they do not drink enough fluids, especially if they are taking certain medications. This is exasperated if your loved one has memory impairment. Adelaide promotes fluid intake at any given time of the day by setting up hydration stations throughout the community. 



*According to the Alzheimer’s Association, consuming the right foods such as those in the Mediterranean-DASH Intervention for Neurodegenerative Delay (MIND) may be able to reduce the symptoms of dementia, especially in the early stages.
