At the helm of our Dining team is James Linzie, our Dining Services Coordinator, who has been at our community since 2014 and has over 16 years of culinary experience in the healthcare field. James says he was able to merge his passions of cooking and working with seniors and that he has truly found his home here at Sunrise of Overland Park and can’t imagine being anywhere else. We agree and think we are truly lucky to have him!
At Overland Park, when it comes to dining, we believe in a hands-on approach and incorporate our resident’s feedback into everything we do. We have a weekly resident food council meeting where we discuss what our residents liked about the menu from the previous week as well as any recommended changes. This is a great forum for our residents to talk directly to those preparing their food and helps make each resident’s dining experienced personalized and special.
Additionally, our dining services coordinator visits with residents in the dining room which allows him to observe firsthand if a certain dish is more challenging for residents to eat and will adjust accordingly.
We love celebrating the holidays at our community and make mealtime special by creating special menus for holidays such as Thanksgiving, Christmas, Passover and more. We are always willing to try something new, including incorporating cherished family recipes into our holiday fare.
