Chef Shawn Boling - In The Trenches!

April 2, 2020

As a Culinary Coach, Chef Shawn Boling takes a unique approach to providing engaging culinary consulting services to the senior living industry. Today, he discusses with host and fellow chef Mike Peacock his evolutionary pathway to consulting and coaching and shares his insights on common pitfalls he frequently sees. Together, they also discuss solutions to some of the many challenges facing culinary programs: equipment, kitchen layout, staffing and training, cooking and product knowledge and leadership,  plus the roles the administration can play in helping to resolve these issues and set their communities up for success.

Dr. Kelly Tremblay - Audiology, Dementia, Food and Science

March 19, 2020

Dr. Kelly Tremblay is a tenured professor of audiology and neuroscience, formerly of the University of Washington right here in our own Pacific Northwest. We were honored when she stopped by the Cosmic Soup Lair to engage Cynthia and Mike in an amazing conversation about the ways that hearing impacts the cognitive abilities of people as they age. We also dug into the science behind food and dementia and discussed one of Cynthia's favorite topics: the mind-gut connection. Join us un a deep-dive down a neurological rabbit hole and learn how to differentiate the true science from the snake oil!

Covid-19:  Crisis Communications, Marketing & Culinary

Covid-19: Crisis Communications, Marketing & Culinary

March 16, 2020

Welcome back to The Soup! As the new coronavirus sets in and Americans grapple with its implications, the Culinary Coach team and 3rdThird team recorded a second special episode addressing COVID-19 for the senior living industry, which is perhaps the most affected sector second to hospitals. You’ll hear public relations specialist Cheri Carl discuss what you can do today to prepare for a crisis, creative director Derek Dujardin share a bag of marketing tactics you can pivot to during this time when tours are stalled and chef Shawn Boling talk about room delivery of meals. This episode is like comfort food for these trying times.

Caveat: The public-health situation evolves daily. At the time of this recording, restaurants and bars were not yet mandatorily closed. Therefore, some of the outreach ideas in the video are no longer valid.

The New Coronavirus and Culinary Preparedness

The New Coronavirus and Culinary Preparedness

March 5, 2020

As we're all aware by now, the new coronavirus (and the COVID-19 disease it causes) present special challenges for senior living communities, health centers, and skilled nursing facilities. The good news is that many communities are already used to handling contagious outbreaks such as C. diff, norovirus, and the flu, so taking extra precautions comes naturally. And yet, there may be no setting where residents have more contact and more chances for transmission than a dining facility.

Today we're joined by Chef Shawn Boling, who is experienced in leading culinary teams through outbreak situations. He talks us through some of the methods that he has used to help communities prevent the spread of viruses, as well as adapt their culinary and dining programs to ensure residents are still taken care of. While this insight is not to be taken as a 100% guarantee, we hope that you find something helpful here that you can add to your strategy to contain coronavirus and COVID-19.

Cecil Rinker, Operations Genie (Part 1) - Workforce in Senior Living

February 21, 2020

We're joined today by Cecil Rinker, whom Cynthia has dubbed "The Operations Genie." And for good reason: Cecil has spent 23 years in the senior housing industry, where he has been able to purse his passion for operations and employee relations.

In part one of a two-part episode, Cecil discusses the challenges with workforce in the industry and shares some insights on how improving employee relations can lead to better retention, improved performance, increased morale, and how all of that affects a community as a whole.

Cynthia Thurlow Cruver- Branding: How to Get it Right

Cynthia Thurlow Cruver- Branding: How to Get it Right

February 21, 2020

Today, Cynthia stops by the Cosmic Soup Lair to discuss her primary area of expertise: branding. We discuss the ins and outs of branding: what it is, what it isn't, why it's important, and how to tell if it's time to make some changes. This is a very in-depth and insightful conversation about a topic that too often gets lost in the mix when discussing challenges within the industry. So if you're struggling with census (Mike's new word of the day) or you're feeling disconnected with the generational changes in the population, then this interview is for you! Check it out and Brand Your Brilliance!
