As a follow on from the Carers UK Policy Report "Malnutrition and Caring: the hidden cost for families" Nutricia supported The Guardian Round Table discussion under Chatham House Rules on "Dignity in care: preventing and tackling malnutrition. Helping to make the most of life" on Thursday May 16th. The reason for supporting such a discussion was that a year on from the Carers UK Policy Report - have things changed? what still needs to happen?
The Malnutrition Taskforce has just launched four implementation and best practice guides to prevent malnutrition in local communities, hospitals, care homes and food and beverage providers. All of these guides can be downloaded from the resources section of the Malnutrition Taskforce website www.malnutritiontaskforce.org.uk resources section.
Jennifer Green, Fund Raising Manager and Wayne De Leeuw, Senior Nurse Specialist, came along to talk to Nutricia staff over lunch to explain more about Dorothy House Hospice and how people can get involved whether through volunteering, sharing expertise, donating items to their charity shops or helping raise funds through various activities.
Despite the hideous weather the day before when registering for the Brighton Marathon, the race day itself came up trumps weather wise and the support from the crowds was fantastic, and Nutricia were there in style - including the supporters.
