Nutrition and Hydration Standards

Warwickshire standards for the promotion of good nutrition & hydration for adults receiving care have been launched. Guidelines have also been developed to provide a practical tool for implementation of the standards, with one version written specifically for care homes and another for other care providers.

The standards have been written through partnership working with health, social care and other partners from across Warwickshire. The aim is that excellent nutrition and hydration in both the community and care homes will be everyone’s business, ensuring a consistent approach; with everyone having access to high quality nutrition and hydration.

Care Homes

These standards have been developed in Warwickshire because a need to improve nutrition and hydration standards and services in care homes has been identified by staff, residents, and families. To meet the key aims of the standards it is recommended that managers and staff in residential care settings complete a self-assessment exercise.
