Senior Dining: a Fine Dining Experience
At Senior Lifestyle, dining is an integral part of the resident experience. Each Senior Dining Director and Executive Chef takes personal ownership of our roles within the community. For the culinary team, it is rewarding to prepare our residents with healthy ingredients and great tasting cuisine. But dining isn’t just about the food. It’s also a time to relax, catch up with friends, and meet some new ones too. That’s why our Dining Directors are always seeking new, creative ways to go above and beyond our residents’ expectations of what it means to dine well.
The World is Your Oyster…Let’s Eat!
Senior Lifestyle takes a proactive approach to providing a personalized dining experience for every resident. Senior Dining Directors meet with residents to discuss and incorporate enhancements to the menu, special requests, and favorite recipes or foods to provide a fine dining experience. Residents can select healthy options based on the nutritional information, or they can simply opt to choose their favorites. Once the order has been placed with their server, they can sit back and chat with friends while their meal is made to order with fresh, locally sourced ingredients.
Feast with the Whole Family!
Dining is often the centerpiece of a family visit. It is our pleasure to make special arrangements specifically for birthdays, anniversaries or a family gathering. You can always arrange private dining accommodations with your Senior Dining Director—even request special menu items like your favorite meal or a cherished family recipe, or receive the attention of a favorite server while loved ones visit.
Variety is the Spice of Life
The menus at every Senior Lifestyle community offer residents a fresh mix of the Chef’s featured entrees alongside a robust selection of handcrafted local staples. As the seasons change, our Executive Chef adjusts the menus to ensure that residents are enjoying the freshest ingredients in their region. Daily Chef’s Specials and featured healthy dining options are always enticing options on the menu.
We Have a Flair for the Dramatic!
Dining can be a visceral experience. A minimum of one day a week, the Executive Chef will set up an “action station” in the dining room. During this time the chef will prepare the special for the evening tableside. Whether the chef is carving juicy slices of sirloin roast beef for dinner or flambéing Bananas Foster for dessert, hungry diners enjoy a flaming feast for the eyes before digging in.
How Can We Serve You?
Our Dining Directors greet residents and their families during dinner service each evening. Reservations can be made in advance in our restaurant-style dining rooms, where our professional service staff will take care of you.
