As one of the best retirement communities Peoria/Glendale area has to offer, MorningStar at Arrowhead understands the important of gathering together as a community to “break bread” each day. We believe food is a healing medicine unlike any other, and when our residents sit down to a delicious meal served restaurant-style, it creates lasting bonds and fellowship within our “family.”
We recognize that good nutrition is especially important to the wellbeing of seniors, which is why food is prepared largely from scratch and features the freshest of ingredients from high-quality producers and/or are locally sourced. MorningStar’s meals are prepared under the direction of our Executive Chef, Isaiah White.
As a resident, you will be treated to seasonal menus and special holiday feasts such as the one we recently enjoyed at Easter. Residents were encouraged to reserve the seating of their choice for this special meal and of course family members were welcome. Also, Chef White modifies menus and recipes to accommodate residents’ changing needs and tastes. Moreover, you can easily self-manage any dietary restrictions as we offer a wide selection of low sodium, sugar free, no sugar added, and low-fat foods.
MorningStar at Arrowhead also believes that nutrient-rich ingredients can help stimulate the appetite and support brain health. This is why we prepare meals using BrainWise super foods that contain a high concentration of vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and anti-inflammatory compounds. Super foods include acai, leafy dark greens, dark chocolates, berries, and fish, nuts and other foods high in Omega 3 fats.
For our memory care residents, food is as much about Community as it is about Nutrition. To encourage appetites, our team members sit and share meals with residents and many are served “family style” as they are in private homes. Much of our food is modified out of respect for residents’ somewhat compromised eating abilities and include finger foods, texture-modified diets and easy-to-recognize balanced meals that taste as good as they look.
