It seems awful that in this day and age people can be denied good food and adequate fluids when they are most vulnerable --something I feel strongly about.

So I was delighted to be asked to be involved with this meeting at the RSPH

Nutrition and Dehydration in Care Homes Keeping up Standards
24th September 2013 • 3 - 6pm • 28 Portland Place, London, W1B 1LY
Those residing in care homes are among the most vulnerable in our community and are often solely
dependent on staff to provide their nutrition and hydration needs. Good nutrition and hydration are
fundamental aspects of good care. It is vital that those responsible for providing these services are
up to date on regulations, standards and know where to go for help as well as feeling confident that
they are providing the best care possible. This event will provide delegates with information on
current nutritional standards and best practice along with practical tips on how to achieve them. It will
also feature cookery demonstrations, case studies and opportunities for networking with colleagues
as well as providing the perfect opportunity to ask experts in the sector any questions you may have.
Speakers include
• Neil Palliser-Bosomworth,
Specialised Medical Diet Chef
• Dr Mabel Blades,
Freelance Registered Dietician and Nutritionist
Who should attend? The event is vital learning for care home managers, catering and care staff, trainers and anyone involved in providing nutrition, hydration and care for the elderly.
