Complimentary Webinar – Register here!

Since 2018, nursing homes in New Jersey have been able to implement the New Jersey Department of Health approved paid dining assistant curriculum. Although the COVID pandemic negatively affected paid dining assistant programs, as facilities return to more typical operational status, now is a great time to consider this program, especially in light of ongoing workforce shortages.

This program is intended to provide nursing home leaders (administrators, nursing leaders, dining services leaders) with the information they need to decide whether implementing a paid dining assistant program is right for their facility.


  • Describe how to establish of a compliant paid dining assistant program;
  • Summarize the purpose and benefits of the program for residents and facilities;
  • Identify resources necessary to begin to implement a paid dining assistant program.

Target audience: Nursing home administrators, directors of nursing, assistant directors of nursing, infection preventionists, dining services directors, dietitians.
