Hi, I would like to organise a wine and cheese tasting event for our residents, but would like some input/suggestions from anyone who has held one. These would be low and high care residents.

I have heard that we cannot give soft cheeses to those in a Nursing Home. Is this right? These are all the yummy cheeses. Is there something else we can use.?

Hi Janelle, soft cheeses are often made with unpasteurized milk and can possibly, and unluckily, harm elder people. For that reason many facilities avoid soft cheeses. Hard cheeses are fine and can be made soft by melting or mashed with herbs. Best wishes.
