Food as Social Currency
At Abbotswood at Stonehenge, 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.
Meet Jimmy BatemanOur Dining Service Director
As Dining Services, Jimmy is responsible for all the dining services operations. His 40-year food service background includes assisted living, restaurant management and catering. He has a passion for the culinary arts and finds joy in providing satisfying dining experiences for the residents, their families and guests to the community.
No matter where our residents decide to dine, they can expect nothing but flavorful, traditional 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.
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.
