The article deals with the dining options being considered by Mather LifeWays to improve foodservice at continuing care retirement communities (CCRCs). The company is moving away from the traditional dinner in the dining room at a fixed time with a set menu in order to offer more options for its clients. At Splendido, a CCRC in Tucson, Arizona, Mather redesigned an old building into four distinct dining venues around a central hub, according to Cara Baldwin, assistant vice president of Dining Services for Mather.
