Food Service Department


Eating means more to people than simply consuming enough calories to sustain life. It’s part of our culture. People cherish their right to enjoy food and have it their way, and evidence is mounting that the meaning of a meal does not change with age or infirmity.  And this is what we care about in Saint Ann Retirement Center. 


“Eating and dining are tied to who we are,” “It’s about good times, family, celebrations. Food is involved in almost everything we do in our society. It gives pleasure. It’s comforting.”

Yet for many Retirement Center's residents, dining can be a less-than-pleasant experience. Food arrives on trays, as in a hospital. But more recently, providers are making the effort to improve their dining options with the help of an evidence base pointing to better ways to meet resident needs.  As we do at Saint Ann.  Here we serve like in restaurants, with a beautiful environment, soft music, and great staff who are there for us in any situation.

The ability to make healthy food choices, socialize, interact with staff and enjoy a tasty meal provides a dignity unmatched by other services.
