A Balance Between Nutrition and Preferences
Our menus are developed with specific nutrition needs in mind: We work closely with dietitians to craft meals that are specific to the unique needs of our members. We lose sensitivity in our taste buds as we age, and this is why we take special care to enhance the flavor of our dishes with healthy herbs and spices. At the same time, we avoid adding extra salt to recipes, as this can sometimes be incompatible with nutrient needs. We take into account the specific needs and palate of each individual. We also accommodate specific diets and preferences such as a low carbohydrate diet or a low-sodium diet, if needed.
A restaurant-style setting allows residents to socialize and enjoy the feeling of being out and about. Residents are greeted, seated, and given a menu. Many retirement communities strive to provide you or your loved ones with the best dining experience possible. Retirement communities constantly update their equipment to include extra features such as pizza ovens, exhibition kitchens, pastry equipment, and more. For those moments when you or your loved one is hungry between meals or before bed, our community also offers healthy, nutritious snacks to ease cravings.
Sustainable, Health-Conscious Approaches
We constantly find new ways of locating local, fresh, inspiring ingredients that enhance the quality of the dining experience at our retirement community. We understand that many of our members pay close attention to where their ingredients come from, and some go so far as to grow their own produce on-site. Check if the retirement community of your choice has a garden or space for members to grow their own vegetables for that farm-to-table experience.
