Eating and Drinking Support Training Course
We all have different needs, wishes and desires. One thing for sure is that we all need to eat and drink the right things to maximise our health and wellbeing. For some of the people we support, eating and drinking can present huge challenges and choking risks. People who are unwell and have medical conditions can sometimes struggle to eat and drink properly. Some people may struggle to feed themselves and need support. Too often, people do not understand the implications of poor nutrition and hydration or the importance of the nutrients our bodies need.
This online training course will look at the challenges people experience in eating and drinking and how to overcome them. We look at how care workers can appropriately provide support prioritising individual's wishes, needs and dignity.
