Oaken Holt supporting Nutrition and Hydration Week 2017

Oaken Holt care home in Farmoor, Oxfordshire are proud to be supporting Nutrition and Hydration Week which starts on Monday 13th March. This initiative aims to highlight, promote and celebrate improvements in the provision of nutrition and hydration locally, nationally and globally.

As part of Nutrition and Hydration Week, Oaken Holt will be running a series of events organsied by our Home Manager and Activities Coordinators to highlight the importance of nutrition and hydration for our residents and team.

At Oaken Holt, ensuring every resident receives the best possible care is our top priority and 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.

For example, research from the British Nutrition Foundation 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.

Set within 23 acres of beautiful gardens and parklands in the heart of rural Oxfordshire, Oaken Holt is a magnificent country estate offering residential and nursing care of the very highest standard.

If you would like to find out more about life at Oaken Holt, our activities and events, or to come and visit, please contact the home by calling 0808 223 5529 or email oakenholt.reception@CaringHomes.org.
