  • What Is Quality? Third in Our Photo Series

  • Amber, the Dietary Manager at Bel-Air Manor, looks on as resident Mrs. Passan tries the homemade soup. When Amber started at Bel-Air Manor, she introduced many new menu items, from comfort food to heart-healthy entrees. Residents got to taste-test the entrees and give thumbs’s up or thumb’s down. Mealtimes are one of the most important times of day for residents, so providing tasty, healthful meals in a pleasant, social setting, is a top priority at all Ryders nursing facilities.

    Resident Councils ensure that residents have a voice in decisions that impact their quality of life. Quality means listening to residents, giving them autonomy and choices as often as possible regarding diet, leisure activities, and other aspects of their care.

    The second picture was taken during Pranzo Bella, a special event where the Bel-Air Manor staff served the residents a special meal from gourmet appetizers to dessert, accompanied by music. Staff enjoyed the event as much as the residents! Staff members consistently go above and beyond and give from the heart to ensure that residents are comfortable, participate in interesting activities, and that all needs — physical, emotional or spiritual – are met.

    Exceptional caring leads to exceptional quality of life for all residents at all Ryders nursing facilities.
