The ones we have seen offer excellent food. Some are buffet style, some have waiters like a restaurant.

Is this in new facilities or ones that have been around for years.

There is a fair amount of "bait and switch" at the new facilities.

Our next door neighbor moved to a new facility because she was starting to have problems with the food here. They had at least three chefs -- one for bread, one for desserts, one or two for everything else. She loved the food. Fresh bread at every meal. 6 months later they were down to one chef. Food was awful. She moved out.

The place I live in made a video about 7 years ago. What a joke. Our dining room manager was wearing a suit and tie in the video. We had a hostess stand and he was seating people. They showed steak and lobster being served. Waiters delivering drinks and food to residents at Happy Hour. They don't do any of that here. They even replaced some holes on the putting green and replaced a few benches and other outdoor areas, specifically for the video. But only those that were in the video. When the company sold this location, they used significant portions of that video for their next location. We watched the video on the Internet and saw residents from here (Phoenix) in their new video (Santa Fe location). Even the intro from the executive director at the start was repeated.

LOL. Some of the current video on their web site is still showing our residents.
