There’s also no shortage of love for good, wholesome food here! As many of our residents are local farmers, we serve our food up right with delicious, feel-good recipes with meat, mashed potatoes, and gravy! We also have special Friday night pizza, and we prepare prime rib for Father’s Day and Mother’s Day, ham and turkey for Thanksgiving, and a mixture of everything for Christmas!

Our residents always feel like they’re at a restaurant with our dining room set up! We offer menus, a soup and salad cart, and dessert at the end of each meal. Families are also welcome to join to share a meal with their loved ones.

Tammy grew up in Firebaugh California in a small farming community 65 miles west of Fresno, where everyone knew everyone. From the time she was little girl she was very close to her grandmother. Tammy started her career in 1989 as a nursing assistant, then went on to become a CNA for several years. She then was transferred to become an Activity Assistant for a couple of years after which she was promoted to the Director. Working with seniors for the last 34 years has been a true blessing and it has become part of who she is today.
