A quality meal served by caring, skilled professionals is a source of comfort and vitality to people in need. To people learning to overcome the challenges of living independently with blindness, it’s a much needed respite from the hard work of training and rehabilitation.

Glendale Senior Dining understands this better than most. Dining services provider to many of New England’s most respected senior resident communities, the company is known for its skill at creating enriching dining experiences that blend fresh, memorable food with compassionate, service excellence.

Last fall, Glendale Senior Dining brought its unique resident dining approach to the inpatient rehabilitation market with the addition of substance abuse treatment center, Serenity at Summit, to its customer roster. This month, it welcomes The Carroll Center for the Blind in Newton, Massachusetts.

Established in 1936, the Carroll Center provides a variety of comprehensive inpatient training, rehabilitation and community-building services to visually impaired people of all ages from its suburban campus just west of Boston.

To the adolescents and adults who live on campus while attending a program, a stress-free dining environment is vital to staying focused on their personal progress.

Says Dina Rosenbaum, Chief Program Officer at The Carroll Center for the Blind: “As a smaller community, we were looking for a local company that can provide the personalized attention needed to create a smooth, enjoyable dining experience — without high overhead. With its strong presence in suburban Boston and emphasis on home-cooked meals, Glendale Senior Dining is a good fit.”

Glendale Senior Dining President, Jim Hecker, agrees. “Like Serenity at Summit and the senior communities we work with, the Carroll Center strives to create a supportive environment with highly personalized services. We’re excited for the opportunity to make a difference.”
