An upscale nursing home in Ridgewood, New York, is offering $10 off every meal at its most popular restaurants, which include an Italian restaurant, sushi bar and a deli.
The home is run by a family who owns the largest and oldest of four properties in the community.
On the property’s website, the owner wrote:”When you have the time and the money, why not spend it on the best meals in town?”
Nursing home in Ridgeville, Pennsylvania, offers $10 meal off every entrée article The Ridgeville-based nursing home offers free meals to employees, but they only get them once a week.
It was created by the owners’ grandmother and their mother, who passed away in the early 1990s.
The owner wrote on its website that the program is meant to give employees and visitors the chance to “live a little and get back to the basics.”
It has been a success so far.
The home has raised more than $8 million in funding and is on pace to have more than 5,000 meals served by the end of the year.
The program is being offered at Ridgeville’s largest nursing home by the family, which is a former coal mine that shut down last year.
It is not yet clear if the program will expand to other nursing homes.
Alyssa Smith, an executive at the Ridgeville home, said in a statement that the staff members and guests of the home “take great pride in the people we serve.”
She added that the meals are free and will be shared with the employees and guests, as well as other residents.
