Food likely is not top on mind when thinking of a nursing home or other retirement communities. Let alone healthy meals. But just ask our residents—our dining experience is one of the ways we’re different.
There’s food for the soul and there’s food for the body. We bring you both with beautiful surroundings and quality cuisine that our residents rave about—unlike a typical nursing home. Every day our dining rooms offer gourmet selections served in well-appointed settings. Treat your family and friends to a casual meal in our patio Bistro or wow them in the private dining room for a special occasion.
As one of the best retirement communities in Pennsylvania, we’re proud to offer residents a variety of freshly prepared, healthy meals served restaurant-style. Our recipes incorporate locally grown produce and fresh ingredients, in addition to regional flavors and resident favorites. The menu selection allows our residents to choose items based upon their personal preferences and dietary needs.
Residents can order from several featured entrees at each meal and at dinner, an alternate choice of breast of chicken, baked seafood or a vegetarian selection is presented. Also available is a salad bar of fresh fruits, vegetables and salads. Fresh bread and rolls are baked each day by in-house bakers and for the sweet tooth a mouth-watering array of delicious desserts prepared daily.
Residents and their friends and family enjoy occasional Sunday brunches often featuring omelet, waffle or carving stations. Fresh fruit, cookies, coffee, tea and juices are available for you and your guests throughout the day and evening.
Our Bistro is available for residents’ leisure to dine inside or out on the patio. Our dining team prepares hearty soups, fresh salads, build-your-own sandwiches, grilled specialties, burgers and delicious sides, even breakfast entrees are served any time. It’s ideal for catching up with neighbors, treating guests to lunch or enjoying a quiet moment with a light meal and a good book.
However, the meal is only part of the experience. In addition to dining with their friends at their table, our residents enjoy socializing with their neighbors at happy hour. And throughout the year, our dining team hosts themed dining events designed by resident direction.
“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.”
