Fort Tryon Center for Nursing and Rehabilitation is proud to provide special services to accommodate the Hispanic community. Several members of our staff are Hispanic and will speak to you and your loved on in dialectal Spanish, creating a comfortable and familiar environment for you and your loved ones. There is no need to worry if you can’t speak English as most of our staff are bilingual and will translate anything from English to Spanish or vice versa. Being able to speak your own language with staff and other patients makes residents feel welcome and comfortable here.
All staff are trained in cultural sensitivity toward the Spanish community and we respect your specific needs, recognizing that they may be different from other residents. To accommodate our Hispanic resident’s food choices, we have a Hispanic Chef who regularly serves traditional Hispanic foods. Additionally, our Recreations director provides cultural activities that are popular in the Hispanic community. We also offer special Hispanic entertainment and programming including Spanish movies and Spanish TV.
We believe that a resident’s native culture is important and should be accommodated. We therefore do whatever we can do help residents enjoy a cultural environment similar to home. At Fort Tryon Center, Hispanic resident’s have the opportunity to maintain a connection with their former lifestyle and culture.
