How we’re responding as our vaccination rates rise.
Nutrition plays a key role in overall health and well-being. A healthy diet keeps the immune system strong which aids in warding off viruses and disease. By contrast, a poor diet can contribute to falls and put you at higher risk for obesity, osteoporosis, diabetes, and more. It’s important that seniors know how nutritional needs change with aging.
Every day at Sunrise communities, you’ll find chefs hard at work preparing nutritious meals designed to nourish the body. But we know our residents expect and deserve meal options that are more than just nutritious. They also want foods that look and taste great.
It may not feel like spring just yet, but we are already looking forward to the fresh and delicious flavors of the season with our upcoming spring/summer menu, which began on March 27 for mansion communities. Our independent full service communities will transition to this menu on May 8.
Fall is in the air, and it’s time to take advantage of the new season’s ingredients by transitioning to our fall/winter dining menu. This was recently rolled out in all mansion communities, and our independent full-service communities will move to this menu in November.
