Dining Services

At AltaVita Memory Care Centre, we believe happiness begins with good food and a full stomach. Individuals with memory-related illnesses such as Alzheimer’s and dementia experience a variety of changes to their bodies that often require special attention to diet. Loss of memory can also lead to irregular eating patterns. Our facility features a full time Dining Services Director, who oversees a kitchen staff trained in preparing meals for a senior population. We maintain a dietary program that offers a wide variety of meals and snacks, while enhancing each resident’s well-being. We encourage our resident’s families and friends to stop by and enjoy a meal to experience one of the finer features of our facility.

While we encourage residents to enjoy a social dining experience with other residents and guests, we understand that some may prefer or require in-room meal service. If you or your loved one would prefer to dine in their apartment, we are more than happy to arrange it.

Private Dining

AltaVita Memory Care Centre provides several rooms and areas for private dining experiences with friends and family. We are happy to welcome you and your party for a private dining experience with your loved one. Advanced notice is required.
