Our modern kitchen is staffed by a team of expert dietitians and food service workers who plan nutritious daily menus suited to each resident’s special dietary needs. In addition to being nutritious, the meals at Sandstone Heights are also delicious. Our residents enjoy choosing from our selective menu. Our resident council gets together once a month to help plan menus.

Friends and family are always invited to come eat with their loved ones. There is space available for private dining, which can be reserved for birthdays, anniversaries or other special occasions. Meals are available for a small fee. Please let us know in advance if you are planning on dinning with us!
