Community connectors…

People who serve meals in care communities are often overlooked when training dollars are budgeted. And even as communities strive to improve overall systems for culture change, staff who serve meals are often left out of the discussion groups or learning circles. Getting the relationship right between the server and resident and among the servers themselves is critical to experience the enjoyment of sharing a meal and creating community. All servers no matter which department they work, need to know the community’s serving standards. Applying this knowledge and performing to higher standards is a powerful tool to making meals meaningful.
