Dining & Nutrition

Chef-Crafted Meals. Every Day.

One of the biggest concerns we hear from prospective residents is around food—and that makes sense, because there’s a perception that senior dining will be flavorless, monotonous fare that feels like a cafeteria. We’re proud to offer the total opposite. Rich with flavor and popping with color, our dining choices make our residents look forward to every meal.

Our Food Network celebrity chef, Brad Miller, creates inspiring, restaurant-style meals that are culinary marvels. At the same time, we don’t skimp on making our food nutritious so you get the nutrients you need.

  • Dining options can be tailored to any doctor-recommended diet or dietary restrictions
  • Individualized dining choices for a restaurant-style experience
  • Recipes and tips for those who love to cook at home
  • Cooking competitions as part of our activities mix
  • Plenty of info on healthy food choices

Whether you choose to dine with others or make your meals at home—maybe a mix of both! —you can be sure you have everything you need to eat healthy without sacrificing flavor and flair.
