Senior Living Menu & Dining

It isn’t uncommon for older adults and their families to be pleasantly surprised at just how fabulous the food is at Elmcroft Senior Living communities! Many people have outdated ideas about senior living dining. Then they visit a community for the first time and walk away with an entirely different idea about the menu options offered with senior living dining!


The truth is residents in assisted living communities look forward to great food shared over good conversation every day at meal time.


Dining at a Senior Living Community

Residents have a variety of menu choices for each meal, as well as the ability to make substitutions. Does a peanut butter and jelly sandwich sound good one day? No problem. They can order one at any meal.


Another nice perk is that meals can be delivered right to the resident’s room. If they are feeling a little under-the-weather or don’t want to miss the evening news, their meal of choice can be enjoyed in the privacy of the senior’s own apartment.


And assisted living menus are a long way from the bland and boring stereotypes many people have. Senior living dining trends now rival dining at a nice restaurant.
