Working with seniors is very rewarding, to say the least. My Dining Services team finds great pleasure in providing top-notch services for our friends and customers, and there is an indescribable feeling of pride when our residents settle happily into the new way of living at Greenview Place.
We also take pride in using an Earth-friendly approach wherever we can. We look for ways to minimize our use of disposable products and we actively participate in recycling. Our rooftop gardens are a wonderful little hideaway, but did you know that a rooftop garden or green roof can actually cool the temperature of the building below? This saves energy by lowering air conditioning bills, which helps keep rent affordable. Not to mention, the vistas the green roof and our gardens present are a balm to the soul. Imagine, our residents can sit outside and relax, watching our plants grow, just absorbing the soothing, peaceful beauty.

Don’t throw it away – ‘post it!
Healthy eating can be exciting and fun – and DELICIOUS!
Here at Greenview Place, we have revamped the menu to respond to our customer’s needs and wants. Our choices are healthy and still amazingly good. It’s true.
Salads are a summer treat that bring out the creative best in our kitchen crew. Look at this beauty!
Today’s salad is the new favorite among our residents: Fruited Spinach Salad. We start with fresh spinach, and top it with grilled chicken breast. The raspberry vinaigrette is made from scratch using Chef Elvis’ house recipe. And believe me, he is a genius when it comes to that. Savory feta cheese with the tart sweetness of sliced strawberries and oranges make this salad anything but ordinary.
Finish up the meal with a slice of our scrumptious homemade blueberry cheesecake. Are you hungry yet?
Ethnic food adds elements of fun and spice to our menu. Today it’s Taco Day – an absolute favorite among our residents. Everyone enjoys a change, and we keep our menu loaded with many different specialties. Our cooking is almost all from scratch, which gives it the homemade taste that our guests just love.
We offer many international favorites such as Greek Salad, an array of Italian pasta dishes with homemade sauce, and everybody’s favorite, quiche! We will be serving Corned Beef and Cabbage on St, Paddy’s Day, when everybody’s Irish eyes are smiling.
Our Spring/Summer menu will place more emphasis on light and healthy foods, but we won’t forget to include comfort food favorites and our tried and true Greenview classics. One thing you can be sure of: we shop local and buy our produce from a Chicago area merchant. It’s important to us to offer the best, freshest foods that we can.
Stay tuned as we roll out the revamped menu…our new Meal of the Week feature will be a feast for your eyes – and the palate. Bon appetit!
