Food is an important aspect of our daily life. Not only does it provide the nutrition necessary to keep us healthy, it also provides comfort and a sense of normalcy.
Seasonal menus are provided while ensuring our residents’ nutritional needs are accommodated. Ongoing resident assessments allow for diets and textures to be modified to meet changing needs.
