Bury Nutrition & Hydration Programme

0 Reviews

The Bury Nutrition and Hydration Programme focuses on delivering a community intervention for identifying and addressing malnutrition and dehydration in the older population.

The programme is based on the following principles:

  • Raising awareness
  • Identifying malnutrition
  • Working together
  • Personalised care, support and treatment
  • Monitoring and evaluating the intervention

Local organisations who routinely meet older people can access free training and resources.

From March 2022, training will be delivered by the Older People's Staying Well Team. It can be classroom based or virtual and demonstrates how to spot the signs and symptoms of malnutrition and dehydration and how to use a 'Food First' approach.
