Lee Sheppard, apetito
 Dining with Dignity – How do you create nutritious, appealing meals for those with swallowing difficulties?

Lee Sheppard, Divisional Manager, Care Homes, apetito


Over 40% of nursing home residents have swallowing difficulties that impact on their ability to eat and drink. For these residents, food and fluid consistencies need to be modified in line with the National Patient Safety Associations Texture Descriptors. However, creating texture-modified dishes that are safe, visually appealing and nutritious is a huge challenge and one that is poorly understood in the care home industry. Residents, both legally and morally, deserve to be presented with dishes appropriate to their needs, yet in many homes, this is far from the case. Come along to our interactive session to see how you can address this challenge.

 Making the Care Environment Dementia Friendly

Dementia Services Development Centre

It is very important that any specialised care environment is carefully designed to reduce the trauma of moving from home and be as welcoming, secure and homelike as possible. This presentation will give examples of some simple principles of interior design and specific environmental changes that will generally improve everyone’s chances of living better in their current environment. Such changes will make things a lot better for some and may have a profound impact on certain people. Whatever our relationship to a person with dementia we can all make a positive difference by knowing about the impact that the environment has.

 Are you ready for the Care Bill?

Sheila Scott OBE, Chief Executive, National Care Association

What do we all need to know to keep up with new legislation this year?

• The Department of Health has just finished consulting on new Regulations surrounding
Standards
• The Department of Health has also just finished a consultation on a new criminal offence of ill treatment or neglect
• The Care Quality Commission has just begun a consultation on their new approach to regulating, inspecting and rating adult social care services‏

This is one aspect, the other of course remains Local Government funding of long term care.
We will make sure your voice is heard if you tell us what you think.
