Nutrition and hydration

The Radfield Home Care team, led by Dr Hannah MacKechnie, understand the importance of good nutrition and hydration.

The right diet and hydration are a great foundation for good health

Great tasting, healthy meals and plenty of the right liquids are super important for everyone at every stage of life. It doesn’t have to be complicated, but it does take a bit of time and effort to get the right ingredients and prepare regular meals and drinks. Sometimes that’s not always as straightforward as we’d like it to be.

There’s nothing like the aromas and flavours of food to stimulate memories and feelings. Old favourites evoke familiarity, while new dishes bring variety (it is the spice of life after all) and new favourites waiting to be discovered.

Our team can prepare all types of meals, from the basics of heating a ready meal and cooking some vegetables to go with it right through to creating a full meal from scratch.

As you’d expect we cater for all sorts of different dietary choices and requirements. We also support clients with different nutritional needs, which may include; making thickened drinks, catering for diabetic diets, and blood sugar testing.

Maintaining a healthy diet is about more than just the food on the plate of course – planning is a key element. Our carers work with our clients and their relatives to look at meal planning, make shopping lists, buy ingredients, and cook and serve delicious, healthy meals at our clients’ homes

All our carers are trained in food hygiene and nutrition, which means we’re constantly monitoring food and fluid intake where healthy nutrition support is required. That means we can keep a close eye on both short-term behaviours and longer-term trends to make sure that people are getting the diet and hydration levels they need to support their health.

If diet and hydration is something you’d like to find out more about, please get in touch with your local Radfield team today. We’d love to have a chat about the ways Radfield Home Care can offer diet and hydration support.
