For example, this past year, we hosted Winter Wonderland, Mardi Gras, Happy Birthday America, Summer Splash, Indian Summer, Oktoberfest and, of course, a variety of holiday celebrations.
Partnering with the Local Neighborhood Community
Every year, we participate in the Alzheimer’s Association Memory Walk, the nation’s largest event to raise awareness and funds for Alzheimer’s care, support and research. Emeritus at Dunedin also sponsors a monthly Alzheimer’s support group and a variety of senior health seminars open to the greater community, including “10 Tips for Health Living,” “Eat Right,” and “How to Prevent Falls.”
Three homemade meals are served restaurant-style each day. Lunch begins with fresh salad greens, and dinner includes a chef’s choice and homemade soup of the day. In addition, Dunedin offers an “always available” dining menu with a wide range of choices, including hamburgers, turkey sandwiches, grilled cheese, catch of the day and much more.
