Nutrition & Hydration Week

 


Nutrition and Hydration week will be taking place from 14th - 20th March 2016.


The NACC is  supporting the week help raise awareness of the importance of good nutritional care, which includes hydration, in all social and healthcare settings throughout the UK.  The week focuses on providing vital advice and guidance to health and social professionals on the action that can be taken to help prevent under nutrition and dehydration.

The aim of the week is to illustrate how, by making positive changes to eating and drinking habits, people can improve their quality of life. The benefit of the campaign to professionals and staff within social settings will be the preventative role they can play in catalysing a reduction in malnutrition related illnesses that often require complex treatments, prolong recovery periods, prevent hospital admissions and associated increased NHS costs, and can reduce the quality of life of the person affected.
