The staff team at Woodstock Residential Care Home are really getting to grips with what it is to take part in Nutrition and Hydration Week (11 to 17 March 2019). It’s an annual event with a shared objective to highlight, promote and celebrate improvements in the provision of nutrition and hydration – locally, nationally and globally.
Read on for some of the things we’ve enjoyed so far this week:
Day One – Monday 11 March
On our first day of celebrating Nutrition and Hydration Week here at Woodstock Residential Care Home, we made delicious fruit jellies with our residents. Residents remarked how they liked the different flavours when they had them at tea time.
Day Two – Tuesday 12 March
On Tuesday this week, residents had the chance to taste different flavour fruit smoothies. One flavour, which was summer fruits, was a little sour for some of our residents. However, the sweeter raspberry and blueberry smoothies went down a treat – some people had seconds!
Day three – Wednesday 13 March
This morning, Wednesday 13 March, residents have been sewing thyme, basil, lemon balm and mint seeds. They really enjoyed planting the seeds in small pots we look forward to potting some vegetables too!
