Nutrition and Hydration Training Courses for Care Homes ~ available in Warwickshire! 

New training has been written by Registered Dietitians to help care home staff put the Warwickshire Nutrition and Hydration Standards into practice.

Appointing a Nutrition Champion is a great way to improve Nutrition and Hydration in your Care Home, so the Warwickshire Dietetic Service at SWFT are delivering NEW Nutrition Champion Training.

The training will define what a healthy balanced diet is, explain the importance of good hydration, the factors that can affect eating and drinking (including the dining environment), and how to accurately screen for malnutrition using MUST.

It will also explain ways to prevent and treat malnutrition, present practical ideas on how to identify and introduce improvements in your care home, ideas for promotions and education activities, and ways to share the information with colleagues in your care home.

The next two training sessions will be held on:

11th March 2020, 9.30am – 3.30pm at Hatters Space, Nuneaton CV11 5DN

29th April 2020, 9.30am – 3.30pm at Brunswick Hub, Leamington CV31 3BD

They are also offering A Caterer’s Guide to Nourishing Meals and Snacks, a practical session enabling care home staff to meet the nutritional needs of all residents.

The training includes information on how to minimise malnutrition with good nutrition, improve the nutritional content of diet with food fortification, ways to support residents with eating and drinking, and therapeutic diets including gluten free, diabetic and modified consistency.

Participants will receive an information pack containing a range of recipes.

The next two sessions will be held on:

12th February 2020, 9am – 1pm at Brunswick Hub, Leamington CV31 3BD

19th May 2020, 9am – 1pm at Hatters Space, Nuneaton CV11 5DN
