Health and wellness are a fundamental part of our community’s overall philosophy. From the very beginning, we set the Eight Dimensions of Wellness as our foundation for building a community of love, respect, and compassionate care for residents and our staff.
With the rise in COVID-19 across the country, our team has made a commitment to strive for 100% vaccinated staff. Any new staff being hired will be required to be vaccinated (or have initiated vaccination) prior to hire. This is important to us not only as a means to protect our senior living residents in our assisted living and memory care community but also our staff that are here every single day who provide care to these residents.
We are dedicated to providing the highest level of quality care always, and this pandemic is no exception. As we work to follow along with global, national, county and statewide recommendations from experts, we feel that this is one thing we can do to help keep our community members safe. Every vaccine saves a life!
Meet Michael Norman, Melody Living’s new Regional Food & Beverage Director! Michael's career has had a continuous thread of giving back to people from all walks of life.
He has worked for the United Nations Peace Corps as a Chef, which was the beginning of his true passion for the value of his occupation.
Sharing his passion for what he does, Michael stated, "Food crosses all borders and all walks of life and if prepared, cooked and served well, it is the finest form of 'Culinary Compassionate Care' that a Chef can provide, and that in itself is the most rewarding feeling of success."
In his new role, Michael will support all Melody Living Dining Services for the communities' existing assisted living, memory care and independent living locations, to include Colorado Springs, Colorado and Lake in the Hills, Illinois. Michael will lead by teaching, training, and mentoring key department heads.
