Dining at Iris Memory Care
The kitchen is traditionally known as the heart of the home, and at Iris Memory Care it serves as the heart of the community! Residents gather daily in the dining room that is open to the kitchen to engage with the chefs as they prepare family-style meals, encouraging interaction with cooks as they prepare classic dishes with fresh, seasonal ingredients. The familiar sites and aromas of a delicious, healthy meal being made is a comforting and soothing experience for residents, even triggering memories and encouraging a healthy appetite.
Menus include meals residents will be familiar with, as well as family recipes shared by others. The food is only part of the dining experience; the sensory cues and social interactions that go along with each meal are equally important.
