Treemont Rolls out Tasty New Menus! View Christmas & New Years Menus 

The holidays are a time to gather with friends and family and be thankful for life’s blessings. But who are we kidding? It is also a time to nourish the soul with great food! Here’s a peak at what Executive Chef senior_menu_Osso_Bucco_at_assisted_living_houston_txJames Renshaw is preparing for his retirement community residents for Christmas and New Year’s! Mmmm….can’t wait! Under Chef James, this senior living community in Houston, TX has refreshed its senior menus this year with new healthy and tasty options. Read about the new menus in the Houston Chronicle. For seniors considering a move to an assisted living or retirement home, I recommend not only a tour but staying for lunch to taste the food. Senior living senior_menus_assisted_living_houston_tx_appetizerscommunities have three opportunities daily (some only twice daily) to delight or dismay its residents. Make sure your community is focused on tasty as well as healthy food options for its residents.

Featured in this photo is Chef James and new Food Service Manager Myra Parker, taken at the community’s Christmas Party. Myra is in charge of making sure the front of the dining room flows smoothly and that servers are performing at a high level of service on behalf of the assisted living residents. Make senior_menus_at_senior_living_in_houston_tx_james_myrasure to ask if there is a dress code in the dining room. Some independent living communities mandate a jacket and tie for men, others are more informal. Think about what attire you might want to have after a month of senior living community dining.
