and lots more….

At Oaken Holt, ensuring every resident receives the best possible care is our top priority. We understand the importance of good nutrition and hydration and recognise they are fundamental human needs. When people are ill, old or vulnerable, nutrition becomes even more important to us in managing their care and to ensure that they have the best chance of recovery and rehabilitation.

Research from the British Nutrition Foundation also shows that older people are vulnerable to dehydration due to physiological changes in the ageing process. This can be complicated by many conditions plus both mental and physical frailty can further increase the risk of dehydration.

Our team at Oaken Holt work together with each resident and creates a personal care/support plan enabling them to have choice and control over their own nutritional care and fluid needs, they are flexible, centred on their needs and available 24 hours a day, every day.
