The Graceful Dining Difference
August 10th 2022
We know that food is at the center of a healthy lifestyle and is an integral part of providing an exceptional senior living experience.
Our Graceful Dining approach provides our residents with a homestyle culinary experience in a warm and inviting environment. We focus on from-scratch cooking using fine ingredients that favor natural herbs and spices, as well as many local and fresh ingredients to serve our residents delicious and well-balanced meals each day, sourced locally when possible. Food isn’t just about providing healthy meals for seniors – it’s about building community, and our dining rooms are designed to provide warmth and welcoming ambience for all to enjoy.
Dining is an important part of life, and we strive to provide our residents with a dining experience that satisfies in settings that feels like home. Our residents enjoy a warm and comfortable dining room with the attention of an experienced culinary team. At many of our communities, private dining rooms provide our residents the opportunity for family celebrations, holidays, and birthday parties with loved ones.
Our trained Chefs design seasonal menus that feature the freshest ingredients from high quality producers. Dishes are prepared daily at the community using a wide variety of flavors, styles, and taste profiles so you can always find something that satisfies your cravings.
Our chefs speak regularly with our residents to learn what menu items they would like featured in the community as we strive to create a restaurant-style dining experience for all to enjoy. We also understand diets alter as we age, and our culinary teams are trained in how best to modify menus and recipes to accommodate changing needs and tastes.
Our dining program is an enhanced culinary experience, integrating traditional, fresh cooking with our residents’ favorite home-style meals.
