Best Practice Guidance: Food and Nutrition in Care Homes for Older People

This Food and Nutrition in Care Homes for Older People Best Practice Guidance from Welsh Government was produced to help care homes to support their residents 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 intake.

This practical, user friendly resource includes information about the food and drink needed throughout the day to support all care homes to achieve best practice and to provide a high quality food service for the people they care for.

How can we help?

The Food and Nutrition Skills for Those Providing Care & Improving Food and Nutrition Care for a Client Group courses align to this document, reflect the guidance in practice and support its implementation.
