Dining Program

Our goal - dining that combine freshness, quality and good taste. Our food and beverage program provides residents with plenty of options, with three restaurant-style meals served daily. Meal time is part of socialization and enjoyment but also provides our residents with stimulation and mingling.

Highlights of the meal program include:

  • Menus created with an emphasis on fresh ingredients
  • U.S.D.A. certified beef, lamb, pork, veal, poultry and fresh seafood
  • Support locally grown produce, in season, as food freshness is our top priority
  • Most kitchen items are trans-fat free
  • Fresh vegetarian options are abundant throughout our menus
  • Most stocks are made from scratch, in-house using fresh-cut vegetables and meat trimmings
  • Fresh herbs, seasonings and spices are utilized to reduce the addition of salt
  • A variety of salad dressings and condiments are available
  • Most soups, sauces and gravies are made from scratch
  • Specialty breads, rolls, muffins, cookies, and pastries are available
  • Hot and cold coffees and teas are brewed fresh

Our truly innovative program, Hydrate for Health®, uses clear, easy to operate dispensers at stations that include signage explaining the benefits of hydration to the residents. The water is infused with fresh fruit, vegetables or herbs and the flavors change daily to keep interest high. Peering through the containers, the residents can actually see the fresh water and fruit, a visual cue to hydrate more often.
