Nutrition and Hydration Week

To mark Nutrition and Hydration Week, Fairmile Grange care home hosted an afternoon event to help raise awareness of the importance of staying hydrated and healthy eating as people get older.

Nutrition and Hydration Week runs from 11-17 March and is organised to promote and highlight the value of food and drink in maintaining people’s health and wellbeing.

To mark the campaign, on Wednesday 13 March, Fairmile Grange in Christchurch enjoyed a special afternoon of smoothies and ‘mocktails’ with residents, which were prepared by the inhouse catering team.

Kim Butters, wellbeing manager of Fairmile Grange, says: “Keeping good levels of nutrition and hydration is extremely important for everyone’s health and wellbeing, however it is particularly significant for the elderly.

"Our top priority is that we provide our residents with the highest standard of care, which is why we always focus on making sure our residents meet their specific dietary requirements and stay hydrated.

“We have a very experienced catering team, who are always thinking of new ways to make the food we prepare and drinks we provide, appealing and appetising. As smoothies have proven to be so popular with our residents, we also offer the option of having a fresh smoothie during breakfast times too.”
