Beth Novak
Dietary Services Director

Beth is a Certified Dietary Manager (CDM) and began working for Maple Ridge Care Center in 2015. "I've enjoyed being employed in food service for 24 years," says Beth. "Food service is a large part of long term care; If you think about it, our lives center around meals, and good food is important to most people. Our residents have a lot of input into what kind of food they would like, and have the option to design special meals as needed. We try to create unique events involving mealtime like a special fish fry, meal outings with our Activities Department, ordering in from favorite area restaurants, and working with residents to help plan holiday meals.

"Maple Ridge Care Center has an active Resident Council which meets each month to seek suggestions from residents and gather input about many things at our facility, including our food offerings. All areas of healthcare are rewarding, including the Dietary Department. If you are looking for a great place to work or visit, stop in and see what we have to offer," says Beth.
