Fruity Friday at Abbeycrest

The chefs at Abbeycrest Nursing Home in Sonning Common have created a colourful treat for the residents today.

Hydration is extremely important for everyone, but the elderly are vulnerable to dehydration due to physiological changes in the ageing process, which can be complicated by health both mental and physical.

Age-related changes include a reduced sensation of thirst, and this may be more pronounced in those with Alzheimer’s disease or in those that have suffered a stroke. This indicates that thirst in older people may not be relied on as an indicator of dehydration.

Caring Homes Fruity Friday has seen the chefs at Abbeycrest creating colourful feasts to overcome barriers to drinking and the reduction in thirst of some residents.

At Abbeycrest we provide specialist residential, nursing and dementia care in a purpose built environment. We continuously improve the lives of our residents through offering wide ranging services, activities and events, both in and outside of the home involving members of our local community as often as possible.
