Resident Choice Dining

Resident Choice Dining is Benchmark's unique dining program that encourages residents to make their own meal choices using verbal and visual cues. Giving our residents the opportunities to select their meals—from their entrée, to their salad dressing, to their favorite dessert toppings—helps them to feel successful every day.

Textured Modified Dining

The Textured Modified Dining program provides great tasting and nutritious pureed meals with a twist. Delicious foods are prepared, blended, reformed with special molds, and attractively placed on the plate in their original shape, creating a much more enjoyable dining experience for all.
