This sample menu resembles a day in the life of the resident’s meals. Our professional chef can prepare almost anything our residents would like upon request, but our daily menu is an appetizing combination of great taste and good healthy choices.

With advanced notice and a small fee, family members are always welcome to join residents during any meal.

Family Style Nights

Our meals are usually served individually, but on Family Style Nights, our Dietary staff serves residents from a mobile catering cart.

This allows residents to choose what they would like on their plate and the portion size they would like to have as well.

For that extra touch of class, we use a table setting of fine china.

Everyday is special here, but we love to celebrate occasions like birthdays, holidays, or even simply the changing of the seasons with some extra decor and special dishes.

We also have an annual Luau where the family and friends gather to honor the staff and volunteers of our facility.

Come celebrate life with us! Let our activity and dietary staff stimulate all of your senses with these monthly themes and tasty fun filled days.

Each month one lucky resident is chosen to share a special candlelight dinner with a friend or family member of his or her choice, on us.

Our professional chef can prepare almost anything for this special meal. The two will dine in our lovely Victorian Room with complete privacy at a table setting fit for royalty.

This is just one of the special touches that makes our facility stand out from the rest.

Often our residents are unable to join their families for gatherings and special occasions. We encourage family members to hold their special events here. Allow us to cater your event to ease the stress of planning and cooking on this special day.

Whether you choose to hold the joyous occasion here or elsewhere, this catering service is exclusive to all our resident’s families with advanced notice and a reasonable fee. From Pizza to Prime Rib; have our professional staff serve your family here or pick up your order for a buffet at home.

No matter what you choose, you will surely come to use this service again.
