AUSTIN, TEXAS (April 8th, 2019) – The Clairmont Retirement Community on Los Indios Trail in Austin has set the benchmark in resident dining by offering innovative, resident-focused menu items with no closing time. This means that while traditional dining options are available, allowing residents to join others in fellowship when they choose, these options are offered without taking away the ability to order a bite to eat any time of the day or night.
The Clairmont is a well-established independent living community Among the factors that make the community unique include five different floor plans and pricing options and all-inclusive living, which make it affordable for the vast majority of retirees looking for a more modern arrangement during their retirement.
While more traditional independent living facilities are still following an outdated dining model that replicates school lunches, The Clairmont is leading the industry by removing barriers between its residents and their nutritional needs. Under this innovative model, residents have the option to join their friends for restaurant-style dining at established times, ordering from a full menu or choosing a daily special, or opt for special menu items available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
This model has made it easier for retirees to choose the relaxed lifestyle that comes with communal living. While moving into a luxurious retirement community offers a wide range of benefits for the modern retiree, it’s very common for residents to worry about access to the things they had at home. After developing their own routines over several decades – which often include a non-traditional or spontaneous meal and snack times – having to make changes to their familiar routine can be enough to steer a retiree away from the benefits of community living. By offering 24/7 dining with access to a limited menu after hours, The Clairmont ensures that residents with well-established personal routines don’t have to sacrifice their freedom to choose when and what they want to eat when they choose to take advantage of the conveniences of community living.
Executive Director, Joanne Green shares the impact the dining model has had on residents: “It’s really been a pleasure to lead the industry by offering this and other services that are entirely focused on the quality of our residents’ lives. Residents have shared that the 24/7 dining program is especially helpful when they don’t feel like going out, are feeling under the weather, or simply prefer to eat at non-traditional times. One couple has enjoyed brunch midmorning – rather than breakfast and lunch – for the past twenty years. They were thrilled to find that they could continue their comfortable routine with us.”
The Clairmont continues to seek new ways to revolutionize retirement options for its current residents as well as those seeking senior living in Austin in the future.
