Read on to learn about recent senior living dining trends and how Artisan at Hudson is on the cutting edge.

1. Fresh Ingredients. One of the easiest ways to embrace the future of senior dining is to offer high quality ingredients and multiple dining options for those with differing culinary needs. Artisan at Hudson exceeds in these areas and more. Take a look at our sample menu for an idea of what to expect.

2. Restaurant-Style Dining. As the world learns more about how health, food and longevity relate to one another, expanded food services have become increasingly important to seniors. Due to this demand, senior communities are now offering restaurant-style dining to their residents. The field is bound to continue to grow and develop as new chefs are hired, new cuisines are pursued, and dining rooms are built to cater to a wider demographic of seniors.

3. Making Meals an Experience. Personalization is important to seniors. Sure, there are tablecloths and flower bouquets placed on dining room tables in many communities. But doe the server know your favorite drink order? All our guests are welcomed by name and by a familiar face. Artisan at Hudson offers restaurant-style dining in well-appointed settings. We strive to make the dining experience about far more than just a meal.

4. Skilled Dining Directors. All-day dining means senior living communities need someone on site who has experience running commercial kitchens and a history of culinary innovation. More and more communities are hiring skilled chefs and dining directors with the goal of staying at the industry’s leading edge.

5. 24-Hour Dining. Some senior living communities offer ‘anytime dining’. Typically, such options include grab-and-go options, food and snacks that can be purchased on demand. In addition to this, bistros, cafes, dessert shops and grills located inside communities often stay open outside of regular mealtimes. Combine this amenity with restaurant-style dining and you have the next wave in senior dining.
