Our memory care Signature Touches are designed to promote the well-being of our residents – our assisted living dining services are no different. At Poet’s Walk, a Spring Hills community, we use chef-inspired meals that cater to the full range of health needs and taste preferences, providing our communities with high-quality, great-tasting food that nourishes body and mind. We’ve found that taking this health and happiness-centered approach elevates the dining experience and promotes a better quality of life for our seniors.
Wholesome Meals for Senior Living Residents
By using garden-fresh ingredients and flavorful recipes, the team here at Poet’s Walk ensure that our seniors can look forward to every meal. To help all residents get the nutrients that they need from their diet, we offer a variety of fresh, local fruits and vegetables, healthy meats, seafood and dairy products, as well as whole grains, nuts, and legumes. We strive to provide a variety of options to suit specific meal plans for those with a range of different health conditions. We also aim to offer choices for those days when our residents crave a warming comfort meal, a light and healthy vegetarian dish, or a hearty plate of traditionally prepared food.
A Sample of Our Memory Care Menu and Dining Services
What is it like to dine at Poet’s Walk?
Within our years of experience in senior care, we have learned that every resident has his or her individual preferences and needs. That is why we make each meal special, with our comprehensive farm-to-table approach, healthy recipe ideas, and our commitment to using only the best ingredients for our residents. You’ll find everything from fresh salads and seasonal stews to mouth-watering desserts at the table.
What is a menu sample for assisted living dining?
Each day, breakfast, lunch, and dinner are served, with every meal offering different options. For example, residents can choose from breakfast dishes such as a vegetable omelet, bagels with cream cheese and jelly, or a warm bowl of oatmeal with fresh sliced fruit. We ensure that there are always heart-friendly options and choices for residents who are managing diabetes. Our dishes always include freshly-grown seasonal veggies and herbs from our community garden, providing variety to our residents who prefer a meat-free alternative at meal times.
How are dietary restrictions or allergies catered to?
Our culinary team takes food allergies and dietary restrictions very seriously so our seniors can feel confident that they have access to healthy dishes that are suitable for their needs. With flexible menus, we can easily substitute or leave out ingredients, when necessary for the well-being of our seniors. It is never a problem to prepare specific dishes, especially in cases of food allergies or other dietary needs.
What about holiday menus or special occasions?
We view dining in the same way we do every area of life at Poet’s Walk – holistically. Our food is meant to nourish the body and to make life more fulfilling. This means that our assisted living dining facilities are designed to be used to help our residents celebrate special occasions, whether with family and friends or as a community. To make the time our residents spend here more inspiring, we always have fun in the kitchen preparing festive dishes during the holidays.
Healthy eating and inspiring meals are vital for embracing life as we get old, just as when we were young. To learn more about our ideas and culinary program, please get in touch! Contact us to request more info.
