Loved ones with Celiac in nursing home

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone, 

I put this on the "coping with" forum but wanted to share here too for those that may not see the other post:

I'm writing an article for Gluten-Free Living about the quality of nutritional care that nursing homes are providing (or not!) Celiac residents. I was so moved by Curtiss Ann Matlock's story a few months ago, I thought I'd do a little digging and pitch the topic to a broader audience. That's what I do!

Does anyone out there have a parent or loved one with Celiac Disease that is currently living in a nursing home (or assisted living facility)? If so, would you be willing to talk about whether or not your loved one is receiving gluten-free meals, the challenges in finding a facility that could accommodate a gluten-free diet, etc.?

If you fit this description, send me a note at heatherrjohnson@sbcglobal.net. 

Note that I'm not talking about short hospital stays or short-term rehab facilities. Need to limit this to nursing homes and assisted living.

Thank you so much,


Heather J
