Elizabeth Lodge is inviting local people to a free event where they can learn more about how to cater for older loved ones.
On Thursday 4th July, from 2.30pm - 4.30pm, Elizabeth Lodge is welcoming Stephanie Chow, stroke specialist dietitian from North Middlesex University Hospital, to share advice on the importance of nutrition and hydration in later life.
Stephanie will be visiting the home to discuss the preparation of nutritious meals for older loved ones, offer general advice on nutrition and hydration, and also share tips on maintaining a healthy diet.
There will also be a Q&A session to ensure attendees get the most out of the talk, and the chance to find out more about Care UK’s approach to dining with dignity, including how different diets are accommodated, such as those for people with difficulty swallowing.
Members of the local community will also have the opportunity to meet the friendly team at Elizabeth Lodge, take a tour of the care home, and pick up a copy of Care UK’s free guide ‘Eating as we age’.
Michelle Sampang, home manager at Elizabeth Lodge, said: “We understand the importance of providing tasty, nutritious and well-balanced seasonal menus for older people, and pride ourselves on helping individuals to dine with dignity.
“This event will help carers support their loved ones to eat and drink well, and help them to overcome challenges along the way – a balanced diet can boost health, relieve aches and pains and even increase mental wellbeing.
“By hosting this free event, we can provide the people of Enfield with expert advice, inspiration and the opportunity to find out more about the importance of healthy eating and hydration in later life.”
