Resident stories

Every day we are supporting thousands of residents in Care UK care homes and day care centres to eat well and stay hydrated.

If you are a family carer, you will understand how each individual is different.  We all have our own likes and dislikes; our own preferences, routines and traditions.

Our Eating as we age guide is packed with so many tips, you can take those pieces of advice that will work for you and your loved one.

Read some real-life stories which show how simple solutions to common diet-related challenges have made a world of difference.
