Can't say enough about the Devonshire & the staff. My Mother has been a resident for 7 years. She lived in the independent wing and then assisted. The team have created a warm, caring & fun community for it's seniors. Many thanks!
Eat, Pray, Love in Senior Living - How Eating Together Increases Health in Seniors Back
Eating alone isn’t easy, and it can be especially difficult for seniors who also live alone. Research shows that seniors who eat alone may face higher risk of heart disease and malnutrition. At The Devonshire, dining is an event that we want to share with you. Here is a closer look into the connection between social eating and healthy eating.
Eating is a social activity. For many, mealtime is a shared experience and a time for stimulating conversation and togetherness. At The Devonshire, we ensure that your dining experience is the friendly and loving atmosphere that you are looking for. Our exceptional chef prepares fresh meals every day that satisfy the nutritional and dietary needs of each resident. When seniors enjoy meals in an environment that promotes conversation, they are more likely to eat healthy and nutritious meals. Check out these ways to ensure healthy and social eating:
- Ask your neighbor to join you for dinner.
- Join other residents at a table in the dining room.
- Invite your friends over for a self-prepared meal.
- Encourage your family to visit for a meal.
Sharing mealtime with others promotes emotional and nutritional well-being. By doing so, you can make dining an easier, happier, and lovelier experience. Join us for a meal at The Devonshire right here in Hampton, Virginia! We can’t wait to dine with you.
