Freedom Dining~Unprecedented Culinary Choices

RLC’s signature Freedom Dining program is the most talked about amenity among residents in every community. Our program mimics the dining experiences offered on 5-star cruise ships by pairing flexible hours with the choice of any one of these eating experiences: Fine Dining; Casual buffet; Chef’s Pantry on-the-go snacks; or Room service.

Style, Variety, and Convenience


Our community chefs show a high level of care and concern for residents’ health and wellbeing. Careful planning goes into the preparation and presentation of our meals to ensure residents have an array of delicious, well-balanced, and nutritious meal options throughout the day. Our menus include a “Chef’s Choice” section featuring regional flavors and resident-inspired recipes.


  • Low sugar desserts
  • A variety of fresh fruits and vegetables
  • A nourishing salad buffet
  • A healthy entrée alternative

Open and collaborative communication is a key component to providing our residents with the highest level of service. Throughout every community we offer numerous outlets for feedback; in fact, our Freedom Dining program was developed in response to our residents’ suggestions.

Comment Cards

Every dining room has comment cards displayed for residents to share written feedback with our culinary team.

Culinary Club

Every month our residents have the opportunity to meet face-to-face with our Executive Chef. During this time, our chef provides updates from the previous month’s meeting; reviews upcoming events; addresses comment card responses; educates residents about where our food comes from; and most importantly, listens to our residents.


After every meal is served, our chefs visit with residents in the dining room. These exchanges provide a platform for our chefs to cultivate a strong rapport with residents and add reassurance that we are always available and open to hearing input.
