Assisted Living Dining

Delicious and nutritious food is a very important factor in deciding on the right assisted living community for you or your loved one. You expect to eat well, have the proper assistance when and if needed, and have a rewarding and positive experience each time. Benchmark Senior Living’s chefs are skilled in balancing flavor and health that emphasize vegetables, fruit, lean protein, and low sodium. They create delectable meals that combine freshness, quality, and taste so that all of our residents can enjoy.

Textured and Modified Foods
If you or a loved one has difficulty swallowing food, don’t fret; there is no reason why you should be devoid of the same delicious foods that others enjoy. Our Textured Modified Dining program provides great tasting and nutritious pureed meals with a twist. We prepare our foods by blending them, reforming them with special molds, and attractively placing them on the plate in their original shape. So, the pizza looks like pizza, the fish looks like fish, and everything looks like what everyone else is eating, creating a much more enjoyable dining experience for all. 

Sensory Dining
Benchmark Senior Living’s Sensory Dining program brings the vibrancy of the kitchen into the communal nature of the dining room, allowing you to enjoy the sights, sounds, smells, and activity that naturally comes with the preparation of a wonderful meal. Our chefs prepare everything from salads to desserts, right in the dining room as you watch, ask questions and share thoughts. If you’ve ever been to a Japanese steakhouse, you may have seen a Teppanyaki chef preparing a meal right in front of guests. This is communal dining at its greatest--and that’s what sensory dining is all about!

Special Occasions
Have a special occasion to celebrate? We can cater meals for birthdays, anniversaries, sport events, as well as holiday celebrations. Any time you want a special dining experience, all you have to do is contact your Benchmark dining staff to make it happen. 

Here’s what you can expect for dining at a Benchmark assisted living community:

• Three meals a day with a variety of choices each day
• Accommodation for those who have special dietary needs, such as a heart-healthy meal plan or a diabetic diet
• Our very own Savory Sensation salt substitute to enhance foods without increasing salt intake
• Sensory Dining practices to help stimulate appetite and prevent weight loss
• Texture Modified Dining where prepared foods are easier to swallow but still look appetizing
