BREVARD COUNTY • MERRITT ISLAND, FLORIDA – Solaris Senior Living Merritt Island is a vibrant, friendly assisted living community that offers a lifestyle of comfort and convenience.
It is conveniently located at 535 Crockett Boulevard, just four blocks west of Courtenay Parkway.
Engaging activities, housekeeping and transportation are included, leaving residents free to enjoy life – not chores. The culinary team serves delicious chef-prepared meals that make every day feel special.
The beautiful dining room provides a welcoming atmosphere where residents can share their delicious, healthy meals together.
“I love enjoying meals at Solaris. The servers are so friendly and so good to all the residents, and the food is fantastic. I’m a fan of the fresh, tasteful salads and vegetables – and at breakfast, the omelets are made-to-order,” said resident Lois Fix.
Residents take comfort knowing their meals will be served by the welcoming and familiar dining staff.
“Just as a family makes a house a home, our attentive culinary team makes the dining room a place where residents feel cared for. They are truly an extension of our family,” said Teri Mortier, Dietary Director.
“We create dishes that are both healthy and satisfying. This year, we are ushering in winter with homemade butternut squash soup, white chicken chili, and classic lasagna,” she said.
Solaris Senior Living chefs craft homemade dishes such as Maple Glazed Bacon Pork Loin and Baked Ziti.
Residents play an important role in the dining experience. They’ll bring family recipes to the chefs, and they choose themed meals, such as “A Taste of Italy.”
The Solaris culinary team provides well-balanced options and choices that honor dietary needs and personal preferences.
“We use fresh locally-sourced produce and fish. The ‘fresh catch’ dinners are a hit, and often feature salmon, catfish or mahi-mahi. Lemon Basil Salmon with homemade tartar sauce is a particular favorite among residents,” Mortier said.
Residents can also celebrate a special event or hold a dinner party by reserving the large private dining room.
In addition to offering spacious apartments and 24/7 nursing care, Solaris Senior Living Merritt Island takes pride in its talented culinary team.
With themed dinners, summer cookouts, and flavorful holiday meals, the dining room is more than just a place for fresh meals – it’s at the heart of Solaris Senior Living’s community.
“I really like the way Solaris runs this community,” Lois Fix added. “From the top-notch housekeeping to the delicious food, and – best of all – the way they treat us.”
