The adjustment from living on one’s own to moving into an assisted living facility is never easy for a senior. But as Hans M. Becker reveals in this important new study, a single additional amenity at a senior home—in this case a restaurant—can drastically improve life for its inhabitants. A restaurant can nurture a senior citizen’s appetite, mind, heart, and soul by creating a space where seniors feel comfortable in their community and among their friends, family, and caregivers. Becker advocates “humanistic care” that starts with the supposition that sharing memories is one of the vital ingredients for a happy and fulfilled old age. The senior citizens’ restaurant provides not only a forum to discuss the past, but means to stimulate memory. Complete with over 250 color photographs, A Taste of Good Living is both a practical guide for care professionals, teachers, volunteers, and family members who are interested in establishing a seniors’ restaurant and a convincing case for the importance of such social centers.
