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 with eight alternative menus for restricted dietary plans.

Our University 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. We also provide an option for eating on the patio during the warmer months, as well as holding mixers events throughout the year.

Andrew McCorry, a Kalamazoo, Michigan native, has been working in culinary for over 15 years.  After graduating with a degree in Spanish and Economics from Western Michigan University, Andrew spent eight years working in food and nutrition for Bronson Hospital before joining the Waltonwood family.  Andrew is most proud of his work creating the Bronson Farmer's Market, refining school lunch programs, and building a program which locally sourced nearly all of the hospital's food. During his time there, Andrew became certified as a Master Gardner through Michigan State University to learn more about how to bring food from farm to table. Andrew also loves to travel and bring ideas from abroad back home to share with others. 
 
Andrew got involved in the senior living industry because he appreciates the healing and comforting powers of well prepared food.  As an advocate for fruits, vegetables, and more simple ingredients he’s put this passion to work for the residents at Waltonwood University.
Since moving to Detroit Andrew has joined the Eastern Market Cultivation Committee to continue these efforts and others close to his heart. He and his wife, Kristin, enjoy running, eating, traveling the world, and volunteering out in the community.
