A Smarter Way to Manage Dining in Senior Living

Are you looking for a way to simplify mealtime logistics and improve resident satisfaction in your senior living community? Implementing an online ordering system might be the solution you need. A prime example of this technology in action is seen through the experiences of communities that have adopted FullCount’s online ordering feature, where residents can place orders from anywhere, on any device.

According to Tae Fant, Senior Dining Services Director at University House Wallingford, the benefits are substantial. “FullCount’s online ordering helps streamline the ordering process and reduces the amount of time staff takes to input orders into the system,” Fant explains. She highlights a particularly appreciated feature: the ability to schedule orders to print all at once during specific meal periods, which optimizes both kitchen operations and meal service timing.

This strategic timing functionality ensures that meal prep is aligned perfectly with residents’ schedules, making dining a seamless experience. “I like how we can pick a time for orders to print out all at once for certain meal periods. Staff and residents like how simple it is,” adds Fant.

Adopting an online ordering system in your community can lead to several key improvements:

Increased Efficiency: By reducing the time spent on manual order entry, staff can redirect their efforts towards more engaging activities with residents, improving the overall community atmosphere.

Enhanced User-Friendliness: A straightforward, easy-to-use interface is crucial for accommodating residents, particularly those who may not be tech-savvy. Simplifying the order process encourages independence and boosts confidence among residents.

Customized Meal Options: Online systems allow for greater flexibility in meal planning, accommodating various dietary needs and preferences. This personalized approach ensures that all residents have access to meals that are not only safe but also enjoyable.

Better Resource Management: With accurate, real-time order data, kitchen staff can better predict meal quantities needed, reducing waste and improving the efficiency of food preparation.

Implementing a senior living online ordering system like FullCount’s can transform how your senior living community manages mealtime. It’s not just about making processes quicker; it’s about enhancing the quality of life for your residents by making mealtime a hassle-free, enjoyable part of their day. Such technologies are proving essential in modern senior care, providing a blend of efficiency and personalization that can significantly impact resident satisfaction and operational success.
