Our kitchen is small and very busy. It serves:

  • 139 residents three meals a day
  • Staff and guests three meals a day
  • A noon meal to Oliver Place tenants
  • A noon meal, Monday-Friday, to Day Program Participants
  • Numerous individual and group snacks each day

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.
