Happy senior woman and server in dining room

Things are happier in the dining rooms of Kind Dining® Communities!

Over the past 2 years, Kind Dining® communities have trained 525 servers to bring warmth to the table! This is especially exciting because, often, servers receive little or no formal job training.

Things change for the better, though, when we teach dining staff how to deliver service that makes residents feel special:

  • Overall resident satisfaction goes up.
  • Servers find greater meaning in their work.
  • Outcomes improve.

Reaching this milestone took a lot of effort on everyone’s part. Thanks so much for the role you played, whether you are a manager, trainer, or part of the serving staff.
