Summary of report contentThis is an enter and view published by Healthwatch Cambridgeshire and Healthwatch Peterbrough, 7 May, 2017. It is not known how many people were spoken to. Summary of key findings: Including residents’ home-grown foods in the menu. We noted the activities programme included a residents’gardening club. It would be a good idea if this could include the residents growing some of their own vegetables,for example, tomatoes, beans and peas, which could then be picked and eatenat meal times. A member of staff joining the residents for a meal. In the dining room,there was little conversation between the residents. A staff member chatted to residentswhilst serving the food. If staffing allows,we recommend a carer to have their meal with the residents to help provide conversation and interest. Developing some activities to talk about food and drink choices with the residents. We recognise the importance of engagement and participation of residents in their lives and care. Would it be possible to include activities to talk about food and drink choices to get residents interested and make them aware of the importance of nutritious food and fluid in-take?
