Nutrition Department


Everyone in the Nutrition Department loves to take care of the elders' diets, which is what our work all about. Everyone will grow old, and it should be everyone's duty to respect and love the elders.


With more and more cases of the COVID-19 reported in the US, adult daycare centers have been closed since this March. The seniors have no choice but to stay at home. They couldn’t participate in the daily healthcare programs, exercises, and other activities. But the goal of CCACC - ADHC is to care for the elders, and we have tried every means to meet their needs.



During the pandemic, we provide daily meal delivery services, which include breakfast, lunch, fruits, and vegetables. Mr. Li, from the Nutrition Department, has been going to the supermarket to replenish the food stocks every week since the pandemic, which is quite risky in terms of his own health under the current situation. However, he said: "For the elders' stable life and health, this is what I should do." And he takes the job willingly.


Since most elder people cannot eat white rice for health problems, the CCACC - ADHC has also started to prepare brown rice in our kitchen. Ms. Li and Ms. Chang, staff in the Nutrition Department, said that they have no problems with the hard work. They used to go to work at 9 am, but now they have to come to the center two hours earlier to cook brown rice for the seniors. However, they have never complained and have always made every meal carefully. Sometimes the restaurant forgets to send personalized meals for certain seniors, Ms. Li is always busy trying to find ways to meet the seniors’ requirements, such as cooking an egg and preparing some other veggies. They both said, "To satisfy the seniors' needs and make them happy are our greatest wishes!"

Respecting and loving the old are the inheritance of love. We should start with ourselves, from the small things, and from now on. All our staff in the Nutrition Department of CCACC - ADHC will continue to do everything we can to help survive this unprecedented pandemic.



敬老愛老之愛的傳承

膳食部

我們膳食部的大家都很熱愛這份照顧老人飲食的工作,這也是我們工作的職責所在。每個人都會變老,敬老愛老應是每個人的本分。

美國從今年三月份開始疫情比較嚴重,老人中心都關閉了,老人家好不情願,卻也只能呆在家里,無法到中心參加保健、鍛煉和其他活動,但是歡樂中心的服務宗旨就是要關心愛護老人家,想盡一切辦法為老人家著想,解決他們的燃眉之急。

疫情期間,我們提供每天送餐的服務,包括早餐、午餐和水果蔬菜。膳食部的小李從疫情開始到現在每周都去超市進貨,在現在的情況下是比較危險的,但是他卻說:“沒有問題的,為了老人家的安定生活和身體健康,這是我應該做的。”很自願地接受了這份工作。

因為大部份老人家不能吃白米飯,中心也開始在廚房自己準備糙米飯。膳食部的員工小平和小陳異口同聲說辛苦點沒有問題。她們原來早上9點上班,現在要提前兩個小時來中心做飯,卻從來沒有怨言,每次都很認真做好每一頓飯。有時候餐館忘了送特別餐,小平總是忙里忙外地想辦法,煎個雞蛋和煮一些菜來盡量滿足老人家的要求。她倆都說:“讓老人家滿意、高興是我們最大的心願!”

敬老愛老是愛的傳承,敬老愛老就要從自己做起,從小亊做起,從身邊做起,從現在做起。我們歡樂膳食部會繼續努力做好每項工作,讓我們大家平安渡過這次的疫情難關。
