How’s the food?
I take each question I am asked very seriously, and this one is at the top of the list. Meeting the most basic needs of those who depend on Coventry for consistent and professional care, is our top priority; and ensuring that the meals we provide are nutritious, seasonally-appropriate, and most of all appetizing, must be a priority as well. I am proud to say that Coventry, and our management partner, Ebenezer, succeed at this most crucial goal every day.
Ebenezer’s stated values are Dignity, Integrity, Service, Compassion, and Innovation. These values are reflected in the effort that our culinary professionals put into menu planning. As you can see from the menu in the slideshow, there is something for every resident, every day. In addition to the technically balanced and nutritionally appropriate choices each day, there is a lot of variety. People living in our community can choose from a selection of light salads and soups, to a wide array of regional and ethnic favorites. We honor the dignity of those who depend on us by exceeding their expectations daily with delicious offerings from our dedicated staff.
Integrity and Compassion
One way I know that our meals are something our clients look forward to, rather than merely technically adequate, is the quiet calm that descends over our community when people are sitting down to their breakfasts, lunches, and dinners. Our chef and her staff painstakingly execute the planned menus with such attention to quality that our residents consider every one of their meals home-cooked. The culinary staff lives our company values daily serving our clients with integrity and compassion.
Ability to Choose
I was inspired to write this post today from an unusual source. I was in our dining room and watched a Care Attendant offering the alternative menu to a resident. It occurred to me that having alternatives is just one of the ways we honor our clients’ ability to choose. It would seem that chicken fajitas (with delicious onions, peppers, and Mexican rice) were slightly more adventurous than he was feeling today. Without blinking, the Care Attendant offered a cup of tomato soup, retrieved an alternative menu, and pointed out that there were options available including hamburgers, sandwiches, and salads.
As the Outreach & Sales Director, it is my number one priority to inform the public what makes Coventry the best choice for Senior living in Mahtomedi. I can state confidently that our culinary services are something that we do well with consistency and respect.
