Merrill Gardens is proud to offer its exclusive Anytime Dining program to residents. This innovative program gives residents the flexibility to choose their meal times, just like they did when they lived in their private homes. Anytime Dining means residents can enjoy restaurant style meals on their own schedule. Residents come to the dining room anytime during the day, and they don't have to plan their activities around set meal times. Anytime Dining lets residents decide when and what they like to eat.
With Anytime Dining, the stress over the possibility of a missed meal during outings or visits is gone. Most importantly, it meets the Merrill Gardens goal of providing residents the opportunity to choose how they live their lives.
Anytime Dining means that the dining room opens at 7:00 am for a hot breakfast, which is available until 11:00 a.m. Throughout the day, residents can come to the dining room until 7:00 p.m. and choose from a list of hot entrees, soup, salad, fresh bread and desserts. Instead of cooking everything at once, meals are cooked in batches so the food is fresh all day. The purpose of Anytime Dining is not to get residents to eat at different hours; it's to give them flexibility and choice.
