Associates from the activities, rehab, and food and nutrition services departments combined forces with residents to cook a homemade spaghetti dinner in honor of Worley’s arrival.
Worley and several occupational therapists assisted rehab patients in preparing three sections of the meal: making homemade spaghetti sauce, preparing and rolling meatballs, and chopping fresh vegetables for a salad.
Activities associates set up the D-wing dining room like a fine-dining restaurant and put on soothing background music. With great anticipation, long-term residents and short-term rehab patients alike gathered for the meal.
“This is the best spaghetti dinner ever!” said resident Betty Unruh. “It was so nice to see our hard work turn out such a success!”
Worley, a graduate of the Culinary Institute of America, has more than 45 years of experience in the food service industry (with more than 17 years in health care food service). Residents are benefitting from his expertise and professional revamping of the dietary menus.
