Upscale Dining Room
At Brook Ridge, we take care of all of the cooking, cleaning and serving when it comes to the dining experience. Our residents can just show up, enjoy their food, and spend quality time with fellow residents. Since meal times are so important to quality of life, we want to ensure that there is always a positive atmosphere in our restaurant-style dining room by keeping the dining areas squeaky clean and creating a comfortable ambiance. Plus, we offer a smaller, private dining room for guests to reserve for events or when family visit.
Our residents can feel like royalty when they dine at Brook Ridge! We provide top-notch meals delivered with love from our wonderful staff. Our restaurant-style dining room is perfect for catching up with friends or family. Residents can enjoy the restaurant feel for every meal without ever having to step foot outside of our community.
We understand that residents have varying schedules, preferences and needs, which is why we provide all-day, 24/7 dining to meet any residents’ lifestyle. No matter the time of day, residents can stop by to grab a quick bite or meet up with other residents for a friendly meal together. And no matter when a hunger pang hits, our residents will always find something healthy and delicious waiting for them.
Tasty and Healthy Meals
At Brook Ridge, we use local, fresh ingredients as often as we can to ensure high-quality meals. Some of our ingredients even come from our own community gardens!

Here are a few dishes you might find on our menu:
Cheese and Tomato Strata
Whole Wheat Pancakes
Seafood Stir Fry
Maple Cinnamon Coffee Cake
Thoughtful Kitchen Staff
At our Rio Grande retirement community, we pride ourselves on our amazing master chefs and kitchen staff who put so much love into the food and dining experience for our residents. They put significant thought into the meals they create in order to ensure that they are tasty and also provide nutritional value. Our dining team is more than happy to meet the needs of residents by providing gluten-free, vegetarian, low-sodium and other dietary options. Our creative Executive Chef is always switching things up and creating new meals to keep the dining experience interesting and find what meals residents love the best. They even create their own signature cookies each month, like stuffed peanut butter and jelly cookies. What a treat!

Gardening is a relaxing, productive activity that can help lower stress and support our mental health. But just because the weather is getting cooler doesn't mean we have to wait until next year to enjoy gardening. Fall is the best time to plant perennial flower bulbs, which bloom year after year!
Check with your local nursery for recommendations on what to plant. There are a range of choices--daffodils, tulips, allium, and hyacinth are 4 of the hardiest perennials for all planting zones. When spring comes around, you can look for your budding flowers!
Food is a critical component of not only our health, but our overall happiness and well being. That’s why we place a large emphasis on the importance of healthy eating. The food we eat every day plays a huge role in our brain function, and that doesn’t change as we get older. In fact, it’s even more important!: ow.ly/FQ7O50KWcuY
