The ISL signature Elevate program transforms the dining experience into a culinary celebration
that inspires the engagement of our residents, families and friends. We create dishes inspired by
residents’ cherished recipes and time-honored traditions, which allows the rest of the community
a glimpse into their cherished culinary memories. The Elevate program allows residents to
engage in creating new memories based on lifelong experiences created around the dinner table.

From all of us at ISL, we want to wish you and your family and friends a safe Thanksgiving!
