Beth Pahmeier - Director of Operations, Administrator and Registered Dietician
I am a registered dietitian, licensed by the state of Wisconsin for the past 15 years. Over the past 25 years I have worked in long term care in many roles and in different types of settings. I have provided direct care as a certified nursing assistant in nursing homes and as a CBRF caregiver in assisted living. As a Clinical Dietitian and Dining Service Director, I have worked in hospitals, skilled nursing facilities, assisted livings and provided nutrition teaching for in-home clients. I have worked at the corporate level, writing policies/procedures, directing regional dining specialists and conducting quality assurance programs.
After working many years for larger companies, I had the opportunity to go out on my own to provide quality care and services that I very strongly believe in. I have owned and operated my own assisted living homes since 2006 and have provided assistance as a consultant for others opening up facilities. The need for quality care for people suffering with dementia has really come to the forefront. With that in mind, I have studied the disease and attended several workshops and training on how to provide quality care for those with dementia. I am now a Certified Dementia Practitioner and Certified Alzheimer’s Disease and Dementia Practitioner Trainer through the National Council of Certified Dementia Practitioners.
As a health care provider, I believe it is my duty to remain current in the latest information in my field of long term care, with an emphasis on nutrition and dementia. My priority then is to share what I learn with those who work in long term care settings and also with those who live it. In addition to providing direction in all aspects of assisted living operations; I teach classes in nutrition, quality food service for assisted livings and now also dementia classes.
