Indulge, Savor, Enjoy

Here at Lakewood, our goal is to cater to the palate of every single resident. Having a 100% made-to-order program means customization is our specialty! Whether you’re craving southern homestyle favorites, exciting new cuisines, a refreshing salad, or a tasty seafood dish, Lakewood has it all. Our ingredients are always fresh, never frozen, and dishes are created with a strong focus on nutritional density.

Our chefs are focused on continually refreshing our menu options so that our residents don’t have to choose between comforting classics and the latest culinary innovations. Our team solicits regular feedback, so our dining program is geared toward exactly what our residents want!

In addition to our amazing Dining Program, Lakewood team members go above and beyond for that extra touch of personalization. Dining servers in Independent Living and Culinary Assistants in Higher Levels of Care know our residents by name and even remember their orders, preferences, and dietary requirements. Going above and beyond to make sure our residents feel known, loved, and cared for is second nature to our team.
