Our Approach

Bringing dignity, satisfaction and choice to residents.

Our mission is simple: Help senior living and long-term care communities succeed by creating memorable, healthy dining experiences that deliver the dignity, satisfaction and choices residents need to live a full quality of life.

We approach our mission with a clear focus on seven core values:

Resident Choice

Having a say in what’s on the menu, as well as where and how it’s served, contributes substantially to a resident’s sense of dignity and independence. That’s why we proactively seek your residents’ input on their food preferences, and their thoughts on what makes a comfortable, satisfying dining experience.

Fresh, Quality Food

Like your residents, Glendale Dining Services puts a premium on food quality and prepares healthy, restaurant-inspired meals to satisfy diverse tastes and dietary requirements. Developed and tested by experienced professional chefs and registered dietitians, our menus feature fresh, seasonal ingredients from local, regional and national suppliers.

Outstanding Service

Our philosophy is that customers’ satisfaction thrives when the people that serve them are treated well and rewarded for exceptional performance. Supported professionally and personally at every career stage, Glendale Dining Services employees deliver the highest standards of service with remarkable skill and compassion.

Employee Empowerment

One of the most noticeable differences about working with Glendale Dining Services is the professionalism and motivation of our people. From our senior managers to chefs to our trusted, front-line hospitality professionals— we hire only the best. And we support them with the industry’s most comprehensive professional development and benefit programs. The result is that our employees take pride in their work and treat your dining service program as their own.

Cultural Compatibility

In the senior living and long-term care communities we serve, resident life centers around food. That’s why we offer a personalized, hospitality-focused approach to dining services that aligns with your culture. It’s all about putting the needs of your community and comfort and satisfaction of your residents, first.
