dietary manager

My name is Jessica and I am the Dietary Manager at the Bridges, I just completed my coursework for Dietetics from Iowa State University and am currently in the process of testing to become a Registered Dietician.

I provide individualized nutrition therapy for any health condition, state of life, or goal our resident and their families have in mind. I can create resources to support the residents’ decision-making about food and diet as well as advocate on their desired wishes. I will assist our residents to adopt healthy habits and develop a healthy relationship with food; teach them about health, well-being, and self-care, as well as be a champion to change as the only constant in life.

I have former experience as a certified nursing assistant as well as cook and dietary aide all in senior living, I feel drawn to long-term care and truly consider The Bridges my home.

receive the care you need

Our goal is to make Assisted Living accessible to seniors in Ankeny, with the ability to stay close to family and friends and develop an incredible support system of new and old relationships.

As you grow older, your health can change much more rapidly than in your younger years, often requiring different levels of care and specialized attention. With our onsite doctors, we can track your health, or the health of a loved one, to make sure you are receiving proper care. Assisted Living combines the freedom of Independent Living with the added benefit of an attentive staff and all-included services to make daily life easier and more manageable.
