Making sure residents in care homes have nutritious food and drinks are essential to good care. Food is fundamental to quality of life and, for many older people in particular, can be critical to their health and well-being. Unplanned or unexplained weight loss can make older people vulnerable to disease and may be fatal.
People’s appetites also reduce with age, so keeping older people interested in food is a challenge.
Malnutrition and dehydration are serious and common problems among older people in care homes.
Age concern reported problems of malnourishment with older people in hospital. They reported that six out of ten older people were malnourished.
Our meals and options cater for all of these needs by supplying meals high in calories, vitamins and nutrients in meals that are familiar to this age group – in smaller portions to suit their appetites.
We have packed our meals so that they can be cooked using various kitchen appliances such as hobs, microwaves and ovens. We cater for all settings.
We work with a company that can supply trolleys in all sizes for settings with no kitchens. These trolleys can cook the food as well as keep it warm and can be used for as serving stations.
We have made it possible for everyone to be able to supply a lunch or dinner. We have also had schools and nurseries purchase a trolley to use alongside their kitchen to allow for in the increased demand for school meals to shorten queues.
We can provide full meals as well as components, there will be no need to increase staff when you are using our meals we have done all the hard work for you no preparation needed! You can manage the increase in demand with your existing team.
