At Mullican Care Center , we take great pride in our nutritional services and want our residents to dine with a elegance, dignity and independence, along with a wide variety of menu options.
We are unique in that we do not have menus that cycle routinely. Rather, we offer a different menu every month incorporating seasonal items such as fresh fruits and vegetables in summer months, and soups and stews in winter months. In addition to the standard two choices at mealtime, in most facilities we have ‘always available’ menus and grill menus. We also pay special attention to holiday meals and special occasions.
Also, select menus are offered with heart-healthy options as indicated on the menu by heart icons. This is part of our proprietary wellness program that incorporates healthy food choices with exercise. Our Strive 2 Thrive Wellness program, unique in our industry, is just one more way we’re committed to providing the best of care for our residents.
Our Fine Dining program includes restaurant-style dining with servers offering appetizers (soup or salad) and beverage service tableside prior to entrées being served. Fine China, linen tablecloths and napkins, background music, and plates displaying menu offerings are part of our service. Entrée plates are removed when the resident is finished with the main course, and a dessert cart is presented for the final course. This Fine Dining program is currently in select facilities.
Options and variety we continue to add to our meal service include weekly waffle breakfasts. Waffles, freshly made in the dining room with a variety of toppings, are available during extended dining hours that allow residents to eat at a time of their choosing, as well as with continental breakfasts and room service.
