“Seniors communities are evolving and dining within them has taken on an important role. The restaurants are the hub for social gathering and the meeting place for neighbors, friends and family. Enjoying a good meal over conversation is integral to seniors communities but the evolution of the dining experience has changed. Higher quality food is in demand, food must be natural, not processed or full of fillers and it must be able to cross a generational divide to please the masses. We have been able to provide our residents with all of these aspects while creating an environment that is both warm and modern.”
