The team at Perry Manor care home will be serving up some tasty inspiration for anyone looking to find out more about nutrition and healthy eating in later life on Wednesday 2nd March.
From 2.30pm to 4.30pm, James Clear, hotel services manager at Care UK will lead a free event where he will share his knowledge and provide practical advice on healthy eating and hydration for older people. James will also give top tips for stimulating appetite and he will discuss examples of how menus can be adapted to suit special dietary needs – for people living with dementia, for example.
Visitors will be able to try a host of delicious sample dishes, freshly prepared by the care home’s head chef, Peter James McGregor. These tempting sandwiches and desserts prepared and served especially for those with swallowing difficulties, as well as homemade fortified drinks and delicious family favourites, such as fish pie, made with fresh herbs, lemon and cream.
After the event, James will be on hand to answer any questions and there will also be an opportunity for members of the public to meet the carers at Perry Manor.
Peter James McGregor, head chef at Perry Manor, said: “At Care UK we understand the importance of providing tasty, nutritious and well-balanced seasonal menus for older people. We pride ourselves on supporting individuals to dine with dignity; and we are passionate about catering for different dietary requirements and appetites as well as helping residents to continue to enjoy their favourite dishes and traditions around food.
“By supporting residents to eat and drink well, and helping them to overcome any obstacles that may prevent this, we can boost their health – even relieving aches and pains and increasing mental wellbeing. We take into consideration every aspect of the dining experience to ensure it is enjoyable, sociable and fun for residents and importantly, that they maintain their independence and love of food.
“By hosting a free event on the subject, we can provide the people of Worcester with expert advice, inspiration and the opportunity to find out more about the importance of healthy eating in later life.”
