Assisted Living Food Service

Assisted Living Tenants have all three daily meals included and snacks are available between meal times.

Our Motto:  Good nutrition doesn’t stop with retirement

  • The kitchen staff at Sun Tower is dedicated to the wants and needs of all our residents.  We feel that proper nutrition comes from an overall balance of the basic four food groups.  Our goal is food that is appealing, appetizing, and down home good.
  • We closely monitor what’s eaten and constantly ask for input from our residents, then design our menus from that information.

Diets and Menus:

  • We offer both regular limited special diet meals according to the individual’s needs.  Our food service personnel are well skilled in making sure the proper foods are available to those with special needs.
  • Our meals are certified by a Registered Dietitian to meet 1/3 of the RDA for an adult.

Guests:

  • Sun Tower staff and residents are proud of our many dinner guests.  This shows us that the people who live here are happy to bring in family and friends to share their warm home style atmosphere, friendly staff members, and good food.
  • Each passing year shows a guest list with numbers exceeding the year before.  We can almost always make room for our invited guests on very short notice.

Events:

  • Our food service operation fully supports all events happening at Sun Tower.  We help the residents in charge of annual events such as our Christmas, Halloween, and Valentine Parties.  We provide cake and cupcakes for our birthday celebration.
  • As a specialty, we offer a Christmas buffet shortly before the holidays so all of our residents may enjoy the event before leaving to visit relatives.
  • In late summer, we have our annual summer buffet, but with sit down dining service available for any resident needing special attention.
  • Our staff members love to participate in the special food events at Sun Tower.

It is very rewarding to see the looks of joy and sincere appreciation on the faces of our residents and their families/friends.
