Food as Social Currency
At The Fountains, we strive to embrace the exciting trends taking place when it comes to dining in senior living communities. Our goal is to make eating an experience rather than just a necessity and nothing else. One aspect of our unique dining experience that we’re most proud of is that our residents have a variety of venues to choose from when they’re ready to dine.
Meet Our Dining Services Director, Ricardo Gomez
Ricardo is responsible for the oversight of designing, planning and implementing standards, policies and programs regarding the delivery of dining service. He served in the United States Marine Corps for eight years and has been serving in the senior housing industry for over 10 years.
No matter where our residents decide to dine, they can expect nothing but flavorful, healthy dishes. We switch up our menu to keep meals from being predictable and boring, and we put our focus on ensuring meals are healthy and made to the highest of standards.
Our chefs are well-experienced, and they share our commitment to provide residents with a one-of-a-kind dining experience. Residents will have no shortage of cuisines to sample, allowing them to taste the flavors of different parts of the world without leaving our community. Be sure to check out the image gallery here on our site for an up-close look at some of our delicious, healthy meal options.
More Than Just Food
Something else we focus on with our dining programs is helping our residents associate food with people and the unique experiences that food can create. For instance, we hope to bring people together and stir up conversations while sitting down for a meal. We feature recipes that can be made by a group of people who can sit down and enjoy their prepared meal, creating new memories. We also offer seasonal events to bring residents together and wellness practices that turn food into medicine that also nourishes one’s well-being.
