Nothing is quite as comforting and nurturing as a delicious, satisfying meal. Our chef finds enticing ways to add flavor to mealtime and is always willing to cook something special to order when a resident has a particular craving.

Flavors of Home

Our menus are designed to create meals that are not only healthy, but taste like home. Flavorful, nutritious selections provide the comfort and nourishment needed to rebuild strength and promote healthy living.

Residents select from a menu of choice, and alternatives are always available. Our staff is very involved in serving and assisting residents, getting to know likes and dislikes and personalizing selections to meet their taste. Our dining committee includes residents and is instrumental in creating meal plans and menus that reflect resident preferences.

Planned to Perfection

Every Wednesday morning we enjoy a buffet breakfast in the dining room, and in the summer we love to BBQ on the patio. Throughout the year our dining team and activities department work closely together to make special occasions even more memorable. From a special couples luncheon on Valentine’s Day for residents and their spouses, to a Vegas-style buffet celebrating National Nursing Home Week, creative teamwork brings everyone together.

  • Diabetic menus
