Free advice for healthy eating in older age at Eye care home

Home news

Older people and family carers in Eye are invited to learn more about eating well and staying hydrated in older age at a free advice event, to be held at Hartismere Place care home.

The free event will be held on Wednesday 18th May, 2.30pm to 4.30pm, and will include practical nutrition and hydration advice from Care UK’s food and services manager James Clear and area roving chef, Andrew Mussett. The Eating as we age event will include advice on supporting older people living with dementia and those with special dietary needs. There will also be a tasting session with the opportunity to sample dishes prepared by the Hartismere Place chef, take a tour of the home and meet the friendly Hartismere Place team.  

Cathryn Weed, home manager at Hartismere Place, said: “As people get older it becomes increasingly important to eat well and keep hydrated. This can be challenging when you or your loved one is less mobile around the kitchen or has a diminishing appetite and interest in food.

“For anyone looking for free professional advice on nutrition and hydration in older age, we encourage you to come along on 18th May and meet our experts and the Hartismere Place team. We look forward to welcoming you.”

The event is free to attend and all are welcome. To book your free place call 0333 321 1988 or email Care UK customer relations manager Angela Hodge at
