Live Event: MorningStar at Hillsboro Opens, with Darrin Bristol

MorningStar at Hillsboro with Darrin Bristol

This special live event celebrates the June 18 opening of MorningStar Senior Living in Hillsboro, Oregon. In this segment, Executive Chef/Dining Room Manager Darrin Bristol joins Suzanne Newman.

Bristol finds it fulfilling and rewarding to to work in a senior living environment. At the end of the day, he makes the food he loves, but it has more meaning, and makes a difference. At this independent living community, he enjoys being able to create a restaurant-style experience in this “upscale retirement living” atmosphere that is similar to what you’d find in a hotel or country club restaurant. Just like a restaurant, they accommodate common special diets like gluten free or vegetarian. They don’t offer a diabetic menu, but they can offer appropriate foods for a diabetic person to make those choices on their own. Specials keep it interesting for everyone, and works in meals that residents love.

Schedule a tour! For folks outside the Portland, Oregon area, MorningStar has communities from the midwest through the Pacific states. Find a community near you at MorningStar Senior Living.com.
