Premier Elder Care

Proper nutrition and a varied, vibrant diet aren't just critical for our health, but for our emotional well-being, as well. At Klein Center we not only provide dynamic menus and snacks for our residents but also give them access to baking their own food, outside meals brought by loved ones, and even counseling from nutritionists. For more information on our meal program and food policies, contact our knowledgeable team today.

Our Meal Program

Meals and snacks are served in each household’s dining room. Elders should not store snacks in their rooms. If we don’t have your preferred snack, please tell your household coordinator. In most cases, we can provide it for you. If your family or friends bring you a special snack, please put your name on it and keep it in the kitchen. Refrigerated items will be kept for three days.

Activity Kitchen

Each household has an activity kitchen that may be used for baking. State fire regulations prohibit stove-top cooking. Elders and staff can bake cookies, cakes, pies, and bread. The aromas will stir memories and please taste buds.


Whether you’re an early riser or late sleeper, your choice of breakfast will be made when you are ready to eat.

Lunch & Dinner

The midday meal is served around noon, and supper is served at about 5 p.m. If you don’t want the entrée, you may choose an item from the substitute list up to two hours before each meal.

Guest Meals & “Carry-In” Food

If your visitors are here at mealtime, they are welcome to join you. One-hour notice is appreciated. Guest meal tickets can be purchased from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. weekdays at the desk in Town Hall.

Visitors are welcome to bring meals from home or restaurants, too. Because dining room seating is limited, you and your guests may eat in the parlor in your household or Town Center.

Nutrition Plans

Our menus meet American Dietetic Association guidelines. Your physician will order a regular, no-added-salt or no-added-sugar nutrition plan for you. Foods can be ground or pureed when ordered by a physician.
