We know what a healthy, tasty plate looks like at our Mishawaka transitional assisted living and memory care community! At Heritage Point, we recognize that providing our residents with the nutrition they need keeps them energetic, happy, and engaged throughout the day. If you’re looking for a transitional assisted living and memory care community that fosters all aspects of their well-being, including through an intentional dining experience, Look no further than Heritage Point.

At our Indiana memory care community, our care philosophy includes supporting each of our residents as a whole. Of course, that includes their meals, as well! Delicious, healthy meals not only support our residents’ physical health, but also their emotional and social well-being. By providing a combination of healthy, chef-prepared meals, conscious indulgences and comfort foods, and a social, restaurant-style dining experience, our residents experience all of the benefits that come with great dining!

Fresh Foods for Full Health

The team at our Indiana memory care community strives to incorporate the freshest ingredients in our meal preparation, providing a wide variety of options so our residents never get bored. Our Executive Chef prepares varying menus daily that all provide a nutritious and delicious plate for every meal.

A healthy plate at our community might include foods such as:

  • Fresh fruits like berries, melon, citrus, apples, and even tropical fruits like mango
  • Lean protein like chicken, fish, and high-quality red meat
  • Grains like brown rice and whole-wheat bread and pasta
  • Legumes like lentils and beans

Our Chef uses fresh ingredients like these to prepare delicious, balanced meals that provide all the nutrients our residents need.

Additional Memory Support with the MIND Diet
At Heritage Point, we incorporated specific foods from the MIND Diet, a research-backed set of dietary guidelines created by the Rush University Medical Center specifically to foster brain health.

Some of the MIND Diet ingredients our residents will see in our recipes include:

  • Green leafy vegetables (like spinach and salad greens)
  • Nuts
  • Berries
  • Beans
  • Whole grains
  • Fish
  • Poultry (like chicken or turkey)
  • Olive oil – used as our main cooking oil

In addition, as recommended by the MIND diet guidelines, other foods are limited to occasional conscious indulgences, such as sweets, cheeses, and fried foods. Our residents can still enjoy their favorites, but in the context of a brain-healthy, wellness-promoting diet.

The Dining Experience Can Promote Health, Too.

Did you know that it’s not just the vitamins and minerals in our food that promote health, but also the experience of eating it? Studies have shown that creating a positive dining environment can positively affect our well-being, too. Our 24/7 dining experience and restaurant-style dining room create an environment where residents have plenty of time to eat their meals, create social connections and conversation with their neighbors, and rest and digest in our beautiful common areas afterward.

Further, meals at Heritage Point are completely stress-free–they’re prepared and served any time of day on our residents’ schedules. A caring staff member greets each resident as they enter, offering them their choice of multiple daily menu options. The entrees are even served on colored plates to stimulate your loved one’s appetite. This type of relaxing, social dining experience promotes healthy digestion, nutrient absorption, and emotional fulfillment.

We’re proud of our high-end dining program at Heritage Point. So proud, in fact, that we want to show it off! Come by to join us for lunch or dinner to experience it for yourself.
