Utilizing the Senses to Increase Census.

Dining teams have the ability to enhance the familiar homemade atmosphere for residents, visitors, and families by purposefully engaging the senses of smell, sight, and taste.

75% of the emotions we generate are affected by our sense of smell. Next to sight, it is the most important sense we have. * Of all the senses, the sense of smell is the most potent trigger of memory.
