Culinary Excellence at Angels Senior Living
Food is truly where the heart is. It’s a priority and it should be when helping to choose an assisted living for Mom or Dad. It can be challenging to find an assisted living with savory yet healthy food served each and everyday. That is why at Angels Senior Living we’re intentional about serving up delicious and nutritional meals and creating a total dining experience. At Angels, you will encounter daily meals prepared from the finest and freshest of ingredients. All of this in a cozy and loving environment just like home, with unparalleled service and a thorough understanding our residents’ culinary likes and dislikes.
It all starts with Angel’s exclusive Executive Chef who develops an overall menu providing many options for each of our residents across all of our facilities. Each meal is freshly cooked or baked in house so you won’t find pre-made meals. Our philosophy is simple: “Give our residents as many choices as possible when they want it.” We want to serve our residents with the highest quality service and offer the best dining experience for each Angels Senior Living resident.
"Upon taking the tour, again we were warmly greeted by any staff member we encountered. I noticed the cleanliness of the facility was better than most; as well as the number of staff to attend to the resident's needs. We were able to taste test from the day’s menu, which was wonderful!"
"We spent much, much time searching the Tampa Bay area for the right assistant living residence for my mother…The facility is outstanding and the food service is excellent. But, more important is the wonderful, caring staff that surrounds my Mother every day."
Frequently Asked Culinary Questions
Q: What is the dining experience like at Angels Senior Living?
Custom-Designed Daily Menus – Each menu is carefully designed by Angel’s Executive Chef to meet the various needs of our residents. Our menus include three-course meals for lunch and dinner daily. There are four menus designed to rotate each and every week. Three times a year, the menus will be re-created so this means our residents never get bored!
Angels “You Choose” Breakfast - Whether it’s eggs, creamy oatmeal, pancakes, bisquits and gravy, French toast, muffins, or simply cereal that day...we will prepare it for you.
Angels All-Day Dining – Each of our assisted living facilities have all-day dining available 7am-6pm with an array of meals to choose from ranging from grilled fish to spaghetti & meatballs to grilled cheese & soup.
Q: How do you really know the food is good across all communities?
Angels Executive Quality Check Program – Our Executive Chef personally tastes our menu items and works with certified chefs, cooks, and servers on a daily basis. Yes, it’s a fact. Angels’ Executive Chef travels to several communities daily and taste tests the meals being served to our residents. Our head chef also works side by side with the culinary team at every facility. The thought process is there won’t be anything served that we wouldn’t give to our own Mom or Dad. This quality check ensures the highest of standards at each of our locations.
Q: Will my loved one have their special dietary needs met?
Yes, we’ve got a plan in place to ensure we can meet every need. Read below to learn more:
Angels No-Added Salt – We’ve made it a habit at Angels to not cook with salt. We get the question a lot so families are at peace when they learn we do not add any additional salt to the food. We offer salt shakers on the table for those who want to add salt to their meal.
Angels Mechanically Altered Meals – We know that everybody has different dietary needs so that is why we can accommodate your loved one no matter what the situation.
• Puree foods (pudding consistency)
• For those who cannot chew food at all
• Mechanical soft diet (ground up)
• For those who cannot chew food well
• Finger foods
• For those who cannot physically use utensils
Angels Modified Meals – It’s important that the meals align with the medical and/or nutritional needs of each resident. We’ll cater to the needs and make sure each diet is custom. For example, we can offer low/no sodium meals, no sugar added and diabetic option desserts.
Angels Weekly Happy Hour – Our facilities will host a weekly gathering with a grand selection of hors d’ oeuvres, wine, and beer for our residents & families. It’s a fun time to get together, unwind, and relax. And even dance…yes, it’s a lot of fun.
Angels “Meet the Chef” Events – Once a month at select locations, we have a live cooking demonstration where certified chefs will cook up some of the favorite dishes and provide nutritional tips.

Q: I haven’t taken a tour but wanted to know what is the dining space like?
Each of our communities are unique and each has their own personality yet we share one common philosophy when it comes to food.

Some of our properties include a relaxing café for a change of environment and/or a private dining room for the option to dine with family in a quiet and reserved space.
Q: How does one order a meal or what exactly is the process?
