Residents can enjoy 24/7 dining with nutritious, delicious food prepared with the freshest ingredients by Stone Valley’s Executive Chef and team of professionals. The community’s daily menu also incorporates foods from the Rush University Medical Center MIND diet, which is intended to foster brain health. At Stone Valley, the MIND diet, in conjunction with the community’s many Memory Care programs, is intended to support mind health and prevent memory issues for as long as possible. Entrees are served on colored plates to stimulate appetite, and a server greets each resident individually with multiple daily menu choices.
And to make residents’ transition to retirement living easy and seamless, Stone Valley offers a partnership with North American Van Lines moving services that ease the anxiety associated with moving.

Self-care has been an increasingly popular topic in the last few years, and it looks different for everyone. Self-care is how someone takes care of themselves mentally and physically, and no two people experience it the same way!
Dedicating time to take care of your wellbeing at any age is the key component to practicing self-care. Luckily, adding self-care to your routine doesn’t have to take too much time; it can take anywhere from 30 minutes to an hour or more, depending on what works with your routine and preferences. Since self-care looks different for everyone, keep reading to learn about the benefits of self care and some self-care activities from our community in Austin, TX: ow.ly/Ggaz50Khm8T
Protecting your skin throughout all of the seasons of the year is an important, but often overlooked, aspect of health. Using sunscreen is extremely important when it is hot and sunny outside, but it is also important to moisturize your skin too!
Moisture helps your skin repair itself. This comes in handy if your skin is damaged by something more serious, like the sun or an infection. A good amount of moisture in your skin also help reduce the likeliness of minor skin problems like tightness and itchiness.
Make sure you are using both sunscreen and moisturizer this summer!
