When you first think of a retirement community or even a skilled nursing facility, you likely don’t think of food. That’s only one of the services that make us stand out.
There’s food for the soul and there’s food for the body. As one of the best retirement communities and skilled nursing/rehab facilities in Pennsylvania, we bring you both with beautiful surroundings and quality cuisine that our residents rave about. Our dining rooms offer gourmet selections served in well-appointed settings, every day. Dine outside in our private picnic pavilion with family or friends or wow them in the private dining room for a special occasion.
“Our parents became residents of the independent living building in May, 2017. From that time on, we have been constantly impressed with the appearance of the dining room, the level of staff attentiveness and the variety, quality and presentation of the food. It is a pleasant and enjoyable experience whenever we are able to join our parents for meals. Each and every one [of your team] has demonstrated true dedication to his or her duties and responsibilities, but above all, each person goes ‘above and beyond’ for my parents in treating them with enthusiasm, kindness and patience. Each time we visit our parents, my family and I are entirely blown away by the efforts the dining staff displays when any small request is made. THEY ARE TRULY WONDERFUL PEOPLE.”

Here, we provide residents with a variety of freshly prepared, healthy meals served restaurant-style. Our recipes incorporate fresh ingredients and locally grown produce along with regional flavors and resident favorites. Our menu selection allows residents to choose items based upon their dietary needs and personal preferences.
For every meal residents can choose from several featured entrees as well as at dinner an alternate choice of breast of chicken, baked seafood or a vegetarian selection. A salad bar of fresh vegetables, fruits and salads is always available. Fresh bread and rolls are baked each day by in-house bakers along with an impressive array of delicious desserts prepared daily.
Residents and their family and friends enjoy occasional Sunday brunches often featuring omelet, waffle or carving stations. Plus fresh fruit, cookies, juices, coffee and tea are available to resident and guests throughout the day and evening.
We recognize there may be times when you have prior commitments, are not available to enjoy a meal during standard dining room hours or prefer to eat earlier or later than scheduled. Our “At Your Service” program adds more flexibility and enables you to enjoy breakfast or lunch on your own time. Just call ahead or upon your return during the available hours to place your order and arrange to pick up your meal.
“For my mother’s 92nd birthday, our family all gathered in the Country Kitchen to celebrate and enjoyed the Elegant Entrees menu. The room was all prepared for us, and the staff was wonderful. It was such an enjoyable experience not only for our mother, but for our entire family. We felt we were at a restaurant without leaving the building.”
