Dining at Carrington Cottage

At Carrington Cottage, we insist our residents get the best home-cooked meals created specifically with their taste in mind. Our nutritiously well-balanced meals are served in our beautiful, cozy dining room, and we encourage residents to dine restaurant-style with their neighbors. Our program was uniquely designed by our Chef and Registered Dietitian to address any dining or nutrition challenges associated with dementia. The program improves food intake while ensuring the dining experience is personalized and fully engaging for each resident.
