Substantial investments in Brookdale’s culinary program and staffing allow us to provide mealtime experiences that set our communities apart from the competition. From our Culinary Arts Training for chefs, to select seasonings and bakery options, we have created one of the industry’s leading dining organizations.
Our fine dining experience is prepared by a trained chef and receives nutritional support and recommendations from a registered dietician.
Three restaurant-style meals are served each day in the group dining room and snacks are provided throughout the day. We continue to meet the nutritional needs of residents with dining choices that offer satisfying entrees, while meeting dietary requirements. Each meal offers a selection of delicious choices, sensational service and we always accommodate special restrictions and requests.
To help alleviate any confusion or added stress, we keep mealtimes very routine for our Memory Care community. Residents all sit together at the same time and same table each day. Meals are served on colorful plates and tablecloths so that they can more easily distinguish their food. We also provide easy-to-eat snacks between meals, helping to ensure these residents get the nutrition and calorie count they need.
Our retirement community hosts events several times throughout the year to get local healthcare providers and residents to learn more about the services we provide. These include open houses, health fairs and our “Dine and Dash” program, just to name a few. We invite other senior communities to come in for our services and entertainment and also reach out to the local community in learning how we can assist seniors and offer our programs and resources to those who need them.
