The CHOICE+ checklists are designed to help improve the mealtime and dining experiences in long-term care and retirement homes. Developed as part of the CHOICE+ program, each checklist is available in both English and French.
There are two checklists available:
- CHOICE+ Mealtime Practices Checklist helps staff in long-term care and retirement homes incorporate the CHOICE+ principles and improve the mealtime experience.
- CHOICE+ Dining Room Checklist helps staff in long-term care and retirement homes create a comfortable, inviting, and enjoyable dining environment by encouraging staff to reflect on the physical aspects and ambiance of the dining room, and offers some tips and suggestions to improve the experience.
The CHOICE+ e-learning course and community of practice were developed by the RIA, Heather Keller, RD, PHD, FCAHS and Sarah Wu, PhD, with support from the CHOICE+ review board.
