Home is where the heart is, yet as so many of us who love a good meal know, the quickest way to the heart can be through the stomach—or taste buds. Our culinary services team is dedicated to nourishing our residents, body and soul, with tasty, heart-healthy meals.
To celebrate, we’re hosting a special “Caring is a Work of Heart” culinary event, and invite you to join us for a delicious meal and to learn about the benefits our residents receive from our nutritional strategy. Mark your calendars for Saturday, February 18th, from 10am - 1pm, when Chef John Lester offers you the chance to experience the great flavor and warm feeling of a delicious meal with our culinary team.
John Lester, a recent addition to the team at The Gardens at Barry Road, comes to Bethesda Senior Living with nearly a decade of service in senior care.
Originally from Oklahoma, our Culinary Services Director came to Kansas City for work. An added bonus was family in the area. When asked what he like the most about working with older adults, John says,
“I enjoy taking care of the residents’ needs. It is incredibly satisfying to see them smile. Every day, I come to work and feel like I get to take care of family.”
