Memory Care Dining

Dignified Dining
At Benchmark, we strongly believe that memory care residents should be afforded the respect they deserve in all facets of life, including dining. Our dining program is just one of the fundamental differences Benchmark brings to caring for those with memory loss. Designed to minimize stress and promote a safe and pleasant experience, our dining program provides thoughtfully prepared meals, carefully selected tableware, and an appealing menu designed by our award-winning chefs. We also offer texture-modified food that allows residents with swallowing concerns to be able to enjoy flavors and nutrition.

Meal and Menu Selection
At each memory care community, you’ll find that our staff is intimately involved in the dining experience. We take great pride in creating menu choices which are reviewed, and reviewed again, to provide the best experience possible. Our chefs work with dietitians to develop seasonal menus that are fresh, nutritional and designed to stimulate your loved one’s taste buds. We ‘dress’ up plates so that they are enticing and encourage your loved one to eat. 

Attention to Every Detail 
You may think that our dining staff members are actually master event planners because no detail is left untouched! They are so in tune with our residents’ needs that they know how to stimulate all five senses and get them ready for mealtime. This includes using safe and visually-appealing tableware and glassware, baking bread or cookies so the whole community is filled with pleasant smells, and playing soft instrumental music to minimize distractions. Our goal is to promote a calm ambiance for a meaningful dining experience.
