We're interested in seeing the persons we support live a long and healthy life - full of all the activities they enjoy. Our innovation stems from this fundamental desire. The following are just a few additional services you and your team can look forward to with EPI.
Getting the food right - in other words, changing our eating habits - gets us closer to sustainable good health. Our experience using My25/Mainstay with our staff and persons served has resulted in persons moving towards their ideal healthy weight and a reduction in preventable health medications. My25/Mainstay isn't a diet - rather it provides nutritional resources and tools to enhance weight management, mealtime habits, and independent skills.
