Dining Menu Information
Southview Senior Communities has streamlined its Monthly Menus at this time. We would like to assure you we are working diligently with our Food Service Providers weekly to ensure we have quality and nutritious products available for our Tenants at all our Facilities. We are working hard to adapt and overcome the constant challenges and changes that face us. We are not able to forecast our normal Monthly Menu in its entirety due to this new process. However, we will have a Weekly Menu available at each Facility. Please reach out to obtain a copy of the current Weekly Menu. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. If you have specific needs for your loved one and want to make sure their specific nutritional health is being met. You can contact the Chef. We are happy to assist with any questions or concerns you may have. We appreciate your patience with this process. Southview Communities would like to assure you that we continue to strive for the same food excellence you are accustomed to.
Joel enjoys creating delicious meals for our tenants and interacting with them on a daily basis. Equipped with a Bachelor’s Degree in Hotel and Restaurant Management from the University of Wisconsin-Stout, Joel took additional courses in the wine industry and worked at golf courses and country clubs before joining Southview Senior Communities in 2012. Joel’s background in senior care and food preparation began in middle school, when he volunteered with senior activities and cooking demos.
As Dietary Manager at Oak Park Senior Living, Joel appreciates the many different personalities that comprise our community. While he enjoys feeding our tenants quality food every day, Joel finds it even more rewarding to socialize with them and see them smile. All the hard work Joel and his staff put in is worth it when they see the happy faces of our tenants and their families following a tasty meal.Email Joel (651) 275-8084
