/R E P E A T -- Suggested publication date as of September 27, 2011 - Recipes for seniors developed by the ITHQ: Available on www.residencesenharmonie.qc.ca starting October 1, 2011— The International Day of Older Persons/

MONTREAL, Sept. 13, 2011 /CNW Telbec/ - On October 1, 2011, ENHARMONIE residences will celebrate the International Day of Older Persons by publishing recipes for seniors on their Web site at www.residencesenharmonie.qc.ca. The recipes were developed by the Institut de tourisme et d'hôtellerie du Québec (ITHQ) upon request by the ENHARMONIE network, which wanted to improve the quality of the meals served in its residences. The recipes were designed around criteria established by Lorraine Cambiotti, who teaches nutrition at the ITHQ, to specifically meet the needs of people aged 55 and up. "As you get older, your body has more trouble absorbing nutriments,"said Cambiotti. "The quality of food therefore becomes particularly important." Debbie Di Chiaro, Director of the ENHARMONIE network, is pleased to offer these recipes to the general public. "The pleasure of food plays a significant role in seniors' lives. We conduct surveys on a regular basis among our tenants to find out what they like," she said. "By publishing the recipes on our Web site, all seniors will be able to benefit from them, particularly since they're affordable."

From now on, a new menu with an appetizer, main course and dessert will be published every month on the ENHARMONIE residences Web site in the "Meals" section on the "Services" tab.

ENHARMONIE residences provide new, high-quality apartments to seniors with modest incomes. All ENHARMONIE residences are certified by the Agence de la santé et des services sociaux de Montréal.
