Special Services - Dining Services
Our Dining Services Department is responsible for food preparation for the entire Center. Dining Services prepares over 40,000 meals per month for residents and over 80,000 a month county-wide to staff, volunteers and visitors to cafeterias within the convalescent center, court house and JTK Administration Building.
Diet modifications are established with input from physicians. Each resident receives a prescribed diet upon admission. Our Clinical Nutrition Staff, Food Production Supervisor and Manager of Dining Services prepare menus that are changes seasonally. Our Dietitian or the Diet Technicians perform a nutritional assessment on admission to further refine diet modifications and gather resident food preferences.
Residents are strongly encouraged to eat in the Residents Dining Room for socialization. The Residents Dining Room offers waited table service for both Lunch and Dinner.
All residents, and their families, are invited to a monthly Food Committee Meeting held the third Friday of every Month. Topics focus on specific Dining Services compliments and concerns, as well as cooperative menu selection for our monthly resident choice meal, and other special occasions.
Dining Services representatives work interdepartmentally to assist with planning special meals such as our "Elegant Dinner In." This popular monthly event includes linen, subdued lighting and music appropriate for the event's theme. Catering Services for meetings or milestone family celebrations are also available.
In addition to all of these services provided for our residents, we also offer an excellent catering menu for special events, parties, etc. Please contact Tom Fiala at 630-407-8293 or email
