Keeping up a “brain healthy” lifestyle.

Here’s some real food for thought: studies show that a Mediterranean-style diet may help support brain health and reduce the risk of Alzheimer’s disease.

At Varenita, our dedicated chef and culinary team incorporate Mediterranean-style ingredients (including fresh fish, whole grains, green leafy vegetables, olives, and nuts) within truly mouth-watering entrées. We’re keen on our residents keeping up a “brain healthy” lifestyle, which is why we also encourage creating meaningful connections at meals with friends and family.
