Made from scratch and made to order – just for you.

Meet Chef Joe


What tastes better than a fresh Caprese salad? Caprese salad by Harrogate’s own Chef Joe. Watch Chef take an ordinary Caprese recipe and kick it up a notch with the addition of prosciutto and his own homemade mozzarella. This signature dish – a favorite of residents – is just one example of how Chef Joe and his dining team make every meal an epicurean adventure. From Jersey farm-fresh ingredients to international favorites, daily dining at Harrogate is just one more reason why our residents say Harrogate is their happy place.

Enhancing the Quality of Life

At Harrogate, Leslie Schwartz, our onsite Registered Dietitian works with all of our residents in focusing on achieving their positive nutritional goals. She is proactively available for individual as well as group consultation to meet and coach on healthy food choices. In addition, Leslie works with our Dining Services team to promote optimal nutrition for all health ranges from Independent Living to Skilled Nursing.

Leslie has several tips that she recommends that are simple tips to healthy eating:

  • Make sure you don’t skip meals. Even if you have small meals throughout the day, frequent eating will maintain energy levels and ensure you’re getting the nutrition and sustenance you need.
  • Moderation is the key. Food can be both enjoyable and healthy. All food can fit into a healthy diet, but it’s important to balance higher calorie, less nutrient dense foods with others that are more nutrient-rich.
  • Stay hydrated. Water and other fluids keep the body running efficiently. Drink beverages with each meal and a couple glasses of water in between meals.
  • Eat the colors of the rainbow. Eating varied foods can ensure your diet has variety and is nutrient-rich.
  • Try something new. You may like it and it could have nutrients you aren’t getting from other foods.
