SHN+ Report: Senior Living Dining 2020 — An Industry Snapshot

The senior living dining experience has changed in recent years. From cafeteria to restaurant-style dining, the senior housing and care industry has evolved significantly. Today’s experiences include display kitchens, grab-and-go options, wine bars, brick pizza ovens, probiotics and alternative proteins — to name a few elements — all in the interest of enhancing resident satisfaction and driving senior living hospitality forward.

Senior Housing News maintains a pulse on the senior living dining experience, through our daily news coverage, annual DISHED senior living dining event, and ongoing conversations with culinary and foodservice professionals.


In early 2020, SHN surveyed more than 50 senior living operations professionals and 17 architects and designers about their thoughts about the senior living dining landscape in 2020.
