Comfort and Style
Residents gain a comforting community atmosphere when dining at Waltonwood, and eating with others has been shown to improve a person’s well-being and sense of belonging. We pride ourselves on our ability to offer residents menu alternatives for restricted dietary plans.
Our Carriage Park chef and culinary team attend to residents’ individual needs by developing a dietary program that encourages good nutrition, with accommodating food choices to meet everyone's preferences.
