Montgomery Place announces dining program guidelines during this time of COVID-19
Dear Friends and Family,
Oh! What a wonderful afternoon in the gardens on Tuesday. During our gathering for wine and cheese, we were blessed with a performance by several members of the Chicago Symphony Orchestra. The independent living residents truly enjoyed the music!
We opened the Dining Room last week. We invited residents to try eating in our beautiful community setting again. Following the guidelines of the Illinois Department of Public Health for restaurants, we spaced tables six feet apart and added sneeze shields between diners. This way, residents can enjoy a bit of conversation and community while eating.
We are open for breakfast, lunch and dinner on a continual basis from 8:00 a.m. till 6:00 p.m. Individuals, who are cautious about being with too many people, can find a time that is less crowded.
We serve “steakhouse-style” with all items prepared after the orders are placed. I hear the food is “much better” than when we mass produced menu items. I encourage residents to invite a fellow resident to share a dining out experience again!
With COVID-19 fears still among us, we are respectful of those who wish pick-up, carry-out or request meal delivery. The menu is the same for everyone. Menus were delivered to each person’s apartment so people can call in their orders. Ready times are provided when the order is made.
We share the details of our new dining program (click here) with family members, as we understand some individuals are confused about how and when to order carry-out and deliveries and to make reservations in the Dining Room.
Please help guide your relatives and share with us your ideas on how to improve on our communication. We want to encourage individuals to partake in meals more frequently to keep their strength and weight at healthily levels.
Please feel free to call my mobile phone number, 773-617-1317, at any time.
Dining together elevates the spirit, too!
