A meal can make or break a day in a Residential Aged Care Home. Using the Lantern Alliance Explore App, powered by SenseMaker, we are able to quickly capture and collate participant’s food memories with the purpose to identify key priorities in terms of improving the aged care dining experience.
Your food memories can be easily and anonymously shared by clicking on the button below.
The Explore App was developed as a tool by Dr Cherie Hugo as part of her PhD at Bond University for The Lantern Alliance in 2014.
The Explore App asks you to share a food memory around a food experience and then answer a few questions about this memory.
The stories collected help to shape strategies to improve the enjoyment of food in residential aged care facilities. Your participation with Explore will help to inform priorities for our larger project – The Lantern Alliance – which aims to improve resident’s quality of life through the joy of good food.
By completing Explore, you are consenting for your anonymous information to be used with that of others in the production of reports to inform future strategies in The Lantern Alliance to further improve the joy of food for residents in residential aged care homes.
