We can provide training and practical support for care homes for older adults to help them to implement the best practice guidance, ensure residents are able to eat and drink well, provide excellent quality food to meet their needs and support them to achieve the best possible outcomes. Older people living in care homes may be particularly at risk of undernutrition, especially if they have conditions that impact on their food and drink intakes.
Further information about the guidance can be found here.
The Food and Nutrition Skills for Those Providing Care & Improving Nutrition Care for a Client Group, level 2 courses align to the best practice document and reflect the guidance in practice. These are accredited nutrition skills courses for health and social care workers.
