Observing cultural differences
I see this as age defined as well as country of birth of a person
table service
Older persons have a set standard for table presentation for meal times
This is a must within community living
It serves as a bringing together of families and friends to share foods but also to offer friendships between people
And cultural dictates how the table is set/presented for the older person
And this must be taken care of to present the dining tables to observe /honour this standard of our older persons lifestyle practises in care
Bread and butter plate cup and saucer service table napkins
Food is/was important to these people we must support this by supporting thier pride in table setting
