When you first think of a Lancaster nursing home or other retirement communities in Pennsylvania, you likely don’t think of food. That’s one of the ways we’re different. Just ask our residents.
There’s food for the soul and there’s food for the body. As one of the best retirement communities in Pennsylvania, we deliver both with beautiful surroundings and quality cuisine that our residents rave about—unlike a typical Lancaster nursing home. Our dining rooms offer gourmet selections served in well-appointed yet comfortable settings.
We’re proud to offer residents a variety of healthy, freshly prepared meals served restaurant-style. Our recipes incorporate locally grown produce and fresh ingredients plus regional flavors and resident favorites. The menu selection allows our residents to choose items based upon their dietary needs and personal preferences. We even designed a smaller, more intimate dining room for those residents with memory loss who may be overwhelmed by a large dining experience.
Residents can choose from several featured entrees at each meal and at dinner, an alternate choice of baked seafood, breast of chicken or a vegetarian selection is presented. A salad bar of fresh fruits, vegetables and salads is always available. Fresh bread and rolls are baked each day by in-house bakers plus a mouth-watering array of delicious desserts is prepared daily.
Residents and their friends and family enjoy occasional Sunday brunches often featuring waffle, omelet or carving stations. Fresh fruit, cookies, juices, coffee and tea are available for snacking throughout the day and evening.
“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.”
~ Daughter of a Resident
The meal is only part of the overall experience. Residents enjoy dining with their friends at their table and socializing with their neighbors at happy hour. In our memory care program, residents even participate in setting the table or preparing drinks, harkening back to a positive family gathering. Plus, throughout the year our dining team hosts themed dining events designed by resident direction.
Come taste why we’re not a typical Lancaster nursing home. Schedule a personalized visit and meal for any day of the week. And don’t forget your appetite.
