Nutrition and Feeding in Care Homes

Food and hydration are essential for general wellbeing, affecting weight, mood, concentration levels and much more. So, as a healthcare worker, ensuring that your patients receive adequate amounts of nutrition and hydration is a fundamental aspect of holistic care. Though this applies whatever clinical area you work in, it is particularly important when caring for elderly people in a care home setting. Here many residents will depend on you not only for the provision of meals and drinks, but also for assistance with eating and drinking.

In this online training course, you will learn why nutrition is a vital part of each individual’s life, the importance of location when dining, how to minimise risk in relation to nutrition and feeding strategies.
