From 17th March 2014 we will be holding Vintage Tea Parties in our customers’ homes. The aim of these tea parties is to reminisce and help provide a feel good factor.
Customers who we have already done tea parties with say “I was made to feel very special during my birthday tea party and enjoyed lots of delicious home-made cakes”
What is Nutrition & Hydration Week?
With around 3 million people at risk of malnutrition in the UK we need to engage opportunities to raise the awareness of the risks and promote the good practices that can help prevent malnutrition and dehydration. Preventing malnutrition improves the health and well-being of the person suffering malnutrition and removes the burden on the health and social care services in treating and supporting those suffering from under nutrition in particular.
Why we are getting involved?
Many of our customers are potentially at risk from malnutrition. Ready meals are very convenient and quick to cook in the care time provided but are not necessarily nutritionally well balanced and can contain high levels of salt.
By taking part in this week we aim to focus and educate our team to think about these issues in their daily work and give ideas on how meals can be improved. We also aim to help impart our knowledge and ideas with customers’ family members on the importance of good nutrition and the benefits of a well-balanced diet.
Nina Tobin, Director and Registered Manager of All Aspects Care Ltd Says “ We have been reviewing what our customers eat and drink and by working with them and their families we have been able to improve their diets by making some simple changes. It is essential that our customers eat well as malnutrition can lead to increased falls and slower wound healing”
“We are developing part of our business and branching into hosting vintage tea parties – we have invested in lots of lovely vintage crockery and old fashioned and healthy recipes”
The week’s mission statement is –
To create a global movement that will reinforce and focus, energy, activity and engagement on nutrition and hydration as an important part of quality care, experience and safety improvement in health and social care settings.
Nutrition & Hydration Week 2014 will be widely promoting the following:
The 10 Key Characteristics for Good Nutritional Care
Nutrition Advocates for each health or social care setting
The minimum standards for good nutrition in the respective settings
Highlighting Good Nutrition and Hydration Practices
Continued Education for professionals on good nutrition and hydration
Emily Sedgwick, Carer at All Aspects Care Ltd says “since receiving updated Malnutrition Universal Screening Tool (MUST) training from Dr Mabel Blades in February it has help me focus on our customers Hydration and Nutritional needs and I have been inspired to talk with customers and their families and make a nutrition improvement plan”
