All meals run similarly. Pre-meal settings place. Service of food and dessert. Bussing, cleaning, and resetting major table implements along with cleaning or assisting the dishwasher. I learned much about dietary, in regards to service, special diets, and behind the scenes of the entire department. I also learned about dementia, among other age-related diseases, in conjunction with how to properly and efficiently deal with problems that arise from these conditions or afflictions.
Management of the dietary department has been stellar, thriving in spite of overall management. A majority of coworkers are pleasant and hardworking.
The most difficult aspects are dealing with late-stage dementia residents or death of residents. Both demand incredibly large amounts of energy to keep at doing things properly. The most enjoyable part is taking care of the residents, and seeing the fruit of one's labor; where the residents say thank you for the meal and are appreciative of the work that has been done.
