Dale Songer, a patient at Rim Country Health & Retirement Community, brings a lifetime of experience as a cook, which he shares with the RCH&RC kitchen staff. Songer originally began cooking for his brothers and sisters as they were growing up, and later in logging and mining camps. His meatloaf and enchiladas are so popular with patients and staff, when it is announced they are on the day’s menu, people line up to enjoy them.

Health care professionals going the extra mile to help their patients is not an unusual event in the Rim Country. The area is blessed with men and women of all ages willing to step up and do more than the routine to help the people in their care.
