Dining & Nutrition
When it comes to food, let’s be honest: there’s a difference between eating as a way to fuel your body and dining as a way to spark your spirit. At Five Star, we deliver on both. You’ll get healthy, nutritious options that can be tailored to doctor-recommended diets and specific meal restrictions. And you’ll also get flavorful, inspired menus created by a Food Network celebrity chef who excels in culinary marvels.
Sometimes, people think you need to sacrifice your love for great food when you join an assisted living community. We believe otherwise. Meals are central to fostering community, connection, and celebration. We embrace that delicious tradition every day, and every meal, at Five Star.
- Restaurant-style meals developed by a celebrity chef, with an emphasis on fresh, seasonal selections
- Focus on nutrition, so you make sure to get the nutrients you need, along with the flavors you love
- Individualized dining choices so you can have your favorite dishes while still adhering to the guidelines of a doctor-recommended diet
- Dining with others to keep social connections strong, in a light-filled, cheery dining space
