Food nourishes us, reminds us of fond memories, helps us celebrate special occasions and comforts us at the end of the day. With our commitment to high-quality tasty meals, freshness, meeting special dietary needs and providing excellent service, BrightStar® Senior Living in Mason has the recipe for a dining experience that is second to none.
As part of our integrated approach to care, the dining services team is brought into the assessment and admission process to understand the dining preferences, restrictions and palate of each resident. We then create an individual meal plan that takes into account the need for modified diets, adaptive utensils and special meals for religious observances to craft a chef-prepared menu that is safe, satisfying, fresh and varied.
Meals are provided three times a day served from our bistro kitchens. We also offer flexible dining times to fit into the preferences of each resident, and snacks are available 24 hours a day. Mealtime can bring people together, stimulate the senses and bring joy. The dining experience we create is not just about offering three meals a day. It’s about feeling satisfied.
When I cook, I like to see the reactions from the guests that I am serving. The best reactions are those that bring the guests back to a place of fond memories and great experiences. This is the style of cooking that I enjoy most especially in the winter months, January definitely falls in this. Everyone is somewhat limited in their travels and outside activities and the holidays are winding down. What a better time to bring out the “Comfort Foods”
Comfort foods often have deep emotional ties, rooted in personal or cultural histories. They are typically associated with positive feelings, nostalgia, or soothing memories. These foods often provide a sense of familiarity and security, offering a psychological boost during times of stress or sadness. The specific comfort foods can vary widely from person to person and culture to culture, but their common thread lies in the emotional connection they forge.
