Our Senior Living Dining Philosophy

We want every aspect of your senior living to reflect our core values of, freedom, friendship and respect. How do we accomplish that in the dining room?

1. Freedom: Eat What You Want, When You Want

It’s your retirement, you shouldn’t have to be on someone else’s schedule—especially when it comes to dining. That’s why our restaurants operate on a “what-you-want and when-you-want” basis. Our variety of menu options allow you the freedom to choose what you eat, and our flexible hours allow you the freedom to choose when you eat. Whether you prefer early bird meals, brunches or mid-afternoon lunches it’s all up to you! Choose from the menu items at the Pub, Bistro or main Dining Room or explore our featured daily specials for a variety of meal options each day.

2. Friendship: Time to Socialize

When it comes to having a great dining experience, we recognize that the dining environment can be just as important as the food itself. Not only that, but socialization is a critical aspect of a healthy lifestyle, improving both physical and mental health for seniors. No matter your age or interests, meals are a great time to connect with friends and family. At the Terrace, you can join your friends in the Pub for a drink or invite your family for a meal in our Dining Room—we encourage social time at meals!

3. Respect: High-Quality, Restaurant-Style Dining

After years in the workforce, raising children, helping your community and more, it’s your turn to be served! Retirement is a hard-earned achievement, and our dining staff will work hard to deliver exceptional restaurant-style dining to you with every meal. The Terrace is proud to offer three different high-quality dining experiences with made-to-order menus.
