Bristol, UK - The Importance of Balanced and Nutritious Diets in Nursing Homes Discussed by Bristol Care Homes.

There are many different things that contribute to a Nursing or Care Home providing high-quality, professional and nurturing care and one of these is the importance of providing varied, healthy, balanced and nutritious food for all their residents. At Bristol Care Homes our food preparation, menu options and nutrition is a priority for us and we understand the importance of balanced and nutritious diets in our Nursing Homes. We provide all our residents with freshly prepared, varied and nutritional food (as well as some treats) ensuring they are happy, fit and remain healthy, both physically and mentally. All our food is freshly prepared on-site by our qualified chefs who all attend Level 3 Training in Techniques for Producing a Varied, Balanced and Nutritional Menu and High-quality Food in a Presentable way, whilst always adhering to every resident’s dietary requirements.

As we age, our needs and requirements change and a good, varied, balanced and nutritious diet, along with keeping active can help to prevent potential health problems both physically and mentally, playing a vital role in ageing well.

At Bristol Care Homes we understand that good food and hydration along with how much and what you eat and drink not only affects your weight but it also influences your mood, concentration levels, how you feel and your general well-being, so we ensure all our residents have the right nutrition and hydration as a fundamental aspect of their holistic care with us.

Our food preparation, menu options and nutrition is a priority for us and we understand the importance of balanced and nutritious diets in our Nursing Homes. We provide all our residents with freshly prepared, varied and nutritional food (as well as some treats) ensuring they are happy, fit and remain healthy, both physically and mentally.

We use fresh, quality ingredients and all our meals are freshly prepared on-site by our qualified chefs to ensure we meet the needs of every resident and any specific dietary requirements. We prepare menus which change weekly so our residents have a varied diet and can see the meal options available to them and these are compiled and assessed for their nutritional values.

###

Every resident is offered a hearty breakfast, mid-morning snack, lunch, afternoon tea and an evening meal. Our meals and snacks are at regular times every day and this gives our residents a structure to their day and social interaction that they can look forward to. It is well known that eating a nutritious diet helps you maintain healthy body weight and a healthy heart as well as reducing the risk of developing some chronic diseases. Research has found that the food you eat can also affect your mood and mental health and this is sometimes referred to as the “food-mood connection.

To ensure that every resident’s needs are met we produce quality, varied, appetising, enriched, balanced and nutritious meals to the same high standards for those residents who need to ensure they have enough calories and nutrients but who may have smaller appetites, as well as those who suffer from dysphagia who have difficulty eating or swallowing food so their food texture needs modifying.
