GRANBURY CARE CENTER ANNOUNCES NATIONALLY CERTIFIED DIETARY MANAGER

Granbury Care Center is privileged to have a nationally-certified dietary manager overseeing its dietary department.

Shirley Horrice, at Granbury Care Center, is certified by the Association of Nutrition and Foodservice Professions (ANFP) as both a Certified Dietary Manager (CDM) and a Certified Food Protection Professional (CFPP). ANFP has over 15,000 professionals dedicated to the practice of providing optimum nutrition through food service management in healthcare and non-commercial food service settings. 

Although Texas has over 1,200 skilled nursing facilities, there are less than 600 nationally-certified dietary managers in the state.

A CDM and CFPP has the education, training, and experience to competently perform the responsibilities of a dietary manager and has proven this by passing a nationally-recognized credentialing exam and fulfilling the requirements needed to maintain certified status.

CDM, CFPPs are experts at managing dietary operations. They are trained and qualified to administrate menus, food purchasing, and food preparation; and to apply nutrition principles, document nutrition information, ensure food safety, manage work teams, and much more.

ADFP’s belief is that the dining experience has many levels, which, properly managed, can contribute significantly to the health and well-being of individuals.

An optimal dining experience is much more than just “eating.” It involves the nutritional value of food, the way food is presented, the environment in which food is presented, and often, the human interactions that occur during the dining experience.

When these factors are properly managed and integrated, the dining experience plays a significant role in human health, happiness, and well-being.

Amy Wees, RD, LD, who is vice president of nutritional services for the parent organization discusses why this is so important to the team at Granbury Care Center, “The CDM credential ensures that the candidate has all of the skills necessary to excel in the dietary manager position.

“We like to promote from within if we have an employee that exceeds our standards every day, and we know that when we help them to achieve this credential, that their training has prepared them to be a leader with the knowledge necessary to succeed and to meet our requirements to serve delicious meals in a sparkling clean kitchen.”

Shirley, of Granbury Care Center, has previously attended the national leadership conference in Savannah, Georgia, and looks forward to attending this June in Minneapolis.
