Carefound Home Care marked Nutrition and Hydration Week last week by hosting a Mad Hatter’s tea party.
Nutrition and Hydration Week is an annual event to help raise awareness of the risks and promote the good practices that can help prevent malnutrition and dehydration.
Carefound Home Care’s teams across Cheshire, Nottinghamshire and Yorkshire celebrated the event by promoting daily tips and recipes to their carers.
And last Wednesday, which was Global Tea Party Day, they held tea parties in their offices and their clients’ homes.
Oliver Stirk, managing director of Carefound Home Care, said: “There are around 3 million people at risk of malnutrition in the UK and this number is likely to have increased during the COVID-19 pandemic.”
“Preventing malnutrition and dehydration is key to maximising older people’s well-being and in doing so reducing the burden on the NHS.”
“It’s fantastic to see the lengths our teams have gone to in promoting Nutrition and Hydration Week this year, not to mention the smiles it has brought.”
