The Lake Michigan Senior Living community assists residents with daily living activities and basic care support in a home setting. Offering three meals a day, recreational and social activities, housekeeping, linen service, apartment maintenance and group event transportation.
We prioritize the use of ingredients known to support brain health by their high concentrations of vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and anti-inflammatory compounds. The charge of our team is not just to create flavor profiles to delight the eye and palate, but to leverage the phenomenal benefits of these aptly named “Super Foods,” items like acai berries, Omega 3 fats, dark chocolate and dark greens.
Through proper diets and healthy choices, food is a healing medicine unlike any other. It is also one of the great joys of living, especially when enjoyed in community. Breaking bread together provides far more than physical nutrients; it bonds us as family and friends.
At Lake Michigan Senior Living, we not only recognize that fact, we celebrate and elevate it. Our staff design seasonal menus that feature the freshest ingredients from the highest quality producers, often homegrown and locally sourced. There is nothing like fresh produce to stimulate the senses and the appetite.
Our meals are largely prepared from scratch, just as our residents would have done in years past. We welcome resident feedback, and tailor our menu to their suggestions.
Blue, black, acai: all these “brain berries” contain anti-inflammatory properties and mega antioxidants which inhibit free radical movement.
Nuts and seeds are a terrific source of protein, are rich in omega-3 and Vitamin E, both known to fight cognitive decline.
Omega-3, a category of polyunsaturated fatty acids vital to our nervous system, are not produced by our bodies and are obtained through diet. An ideal source: cold-water fish.
Our brains are 60% fat, the fattiest organ in our bodies; to function optimally, they need to be fed fats.
For a heart-healthy, antioxidant treat, choose dark chocolate with high cocoa mass. It improves concentration, and increases endorphins that mood lift.
