Like the luxury cruise ship industry, upscale senior living communities are dramatically changing their concept of dining.

Innovative communities realize that established dining times fail to appeal to residents who wish to dine on their own schedule versus specified hours.

Flexibility is key and at The Carlisle Naples, as in all Senior Resource Group (SRG) communities, residents are afforded the option of dining when they choose. The luxury, resort-style community’s restaurant, renowned for its extensive fine dining menu, is open 12 hours daily, seven days a week.

Further, without the responsibilities of the day-to-day household chores such as grocery shopping, cooking and cleaning, residents say they now have time to enjoy the activities that bring them the most satisfaction. From volunteering at local hospitals to involvement in various charities and organizations, Carlisle residents have the freedom to pursue their passions. And, after a busy day, they always have the option to place a “to go” order at The Carlisle’s restaurant and enjoy a relaxing dinner in their apartments.

For residents who prefer to dine at the restaurant, the dining experience begins even before the server arrives at the table. Fine china, crisp linens and fresh flowers add to the restaurant’s ambiance. Personal service is paramount; dining staff knows residents by name and anticipate their preferences.

Our talented executive chef works tirelessly to exceed residents’ expectations and raises the bar of five-star dining at a senior living community. The Carlisle Room’s menu entrees incorporate a full range of selections—from gourmet international and ethnic cuisine to comfort foods and heart healthy options.

On a typical day, residents’ dinner choices may range from a flavorful, fresh salmon filet, lightly seasoned and grilled to order and finished with a drizzle of pesto glaze to herb-crusted Spring Lamb Chops, thick rib chops roasted to perfection with an onion mint marmalade.

Plus, as part of the community’s engaging calendar of social events, a monthly “Chef’s Chat” is scheduled for residents to taste-test recipes that may be considered for the menu which changes daily.

In addition to enjoying a complimentary full breakfast plus choice of lunch or dinner daily, Carlisle residents participate in several themed dinner parties and socials throughout the month, all of which are included in the monthly fee.

Located at 6945 Carlisle Court in Naples, The Carlisle offers spacious one-and two-bedroom residences include lifetime care and maintenance, weekly housekeeping and flat linen services, basic cable TV, all utilities except telephone, and a complimentary full breakfast plus choice of lunch or dinner in the community’s gourmet-style restaurant.

The Carlisle, a luxury, resort-style senior living community in North Naples, offers both Independent and Assisted Living lifestyles. Available on a monthly fee basis, the ECC-licensed and CARF-accredited community boasts a full range of services and amenities including 12-hour restaurant dining, housekeeping, transportation and activities. Located on Airport-Pulling Road, between Pine Ridge and Immokalee Roads, the award-winning community’s lush tropical environment is highlighted with meandering walking paths around three lakes and tranquility gardens.
