Eat Well, Be Well

Food has been used since the beginning of time for its healing medicine-like qualities. It’s no secret that what’s healthy and physically supportive to eat can change as we get older. Many of us pursue a diet lower in sodium, fat, refined sugars, and processed ingredients to help us live healthier and feel our best. 

Additionally, studies have shown that choosing to select food that follows the MIND Diet can help prevent and slow the progression of Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementias by as much as 53%. This is why every meal served at Keystone Commons provides our residents with the opportunity to effortlessly follow the MIND Diet.

It’s easy to find the options you want right off the menu at Keystone Commons, from savory vegetarian entrees to delectable sugar-free desserts to the fresh catch of the day. Look for scratch-made dishes using fresh, locally sourced ingredients, crafted by our skilled culinary professionals.

David Powers, Dining Services Director at Keystone Commons in Ludlow, Massachusetts

David Powers – Dining Services Director

I remember watching my mother's devotion to cooking at a young age, and being curious about how she made these amazing feasts for us. I also enjoyed helping my father when he decided to open a hot dog stand. However, it was my initial love of eating that drew me to the kitchen. Whether it was my mom's BBQ or my dad's Goulash; nothing made me happier than devouring the meals put in front of me.

That early interest has blossomed into a career that began almost 30 years ago. My diverse and well traveled experience includes fine dining and a 4 star hotel in Chicago, running an outdoor grill at a country club, cooking traditional French bistro meals using local ingredients, catering upscale events, and developing my baking skills along the way.

From each place I have learned essential skills such as butchering, baking, smoking, and soup and sauce making. I enjoy sharing these skills with the chefs who I am lucky to work with. Together with the rest of our staff we create dining experiences that our residents like to speak about for the days that follow.

As your Director of Dining I am pleased to lead a great team of professionals who truly love providing the people of Keystone Commons with lasting memories of food and caring service.
