Residents, relatives and the care team at Woodview Care Home in Lincolnshire enjoyed the recent Nutrition and Hydration Week.
Danya, the home’s Nutrition Ambassador got everyone involved spreading awareness of the importance of nutrition and hydration.
Diane Roach, Home Manager, said: “It was an action packed week. We started with fruit tasting, where residents were offered the chance to sample some of their favourite fruits and to try some new, exotic ones including passion fruit, kiwi and sharon fruit.
“Swallowing awareness day was embraced by everyone, as we allowed the team and residents to switch roles, enabling them to ‘assist the assister’. This prompted a lot of interesting discussions amongst the team and residents about how it feels to be assisted with your meals.
“To finish the week off we all enjoyed a morning cream tea. However, there were still lots of difference things to try including flavoured drinks, milkshakes and smoothies.”
