The New Face of Senior Living Dining: From Formal to Casual

When you take a bite of an exquisitely-prepared, incredibly delicious, amazingly plated meal, have you ever thought: “Wow, this is great – like something you’d get at a senior living community?”

These days, that thought is closer to reality than you’d expect. Gone are pre-packaged fruit cups, watery instant potatoes and yellow gravy from a can. In its place, you’ll find locally sourced ingredients, cuisine options from around the world, made-from-scratch menu options and an atmosphere you’d expect to find in a fine dining establishment.
