Dining Program

Dining – The Heart of Our Alzheimer’s Community

A Dining Experience For Members In Our Dementia Program

Affectionately named “the heart of the home”, Terra Vista’s dementia-friendly dining emulates a sense of intimacy and familiarness just like home. After all, for our residents, Terra Vista is home.

Our community focuses on family style dining, i.e., staff will be dining with the residents, not just serving them. Dining together creates a stronger bond and a sense of family between staff and residents as well as provides extra hands to assist those who may need extra help during mealtime.

We offer an open-kitchen concept in each of our four dining rooms that allows residents, family, and staff members to all dine together in a quaint but social environment that overlooks our 18,000 square foot outdoor InnerWalk™.
