Meals, Drinks & Medication
A core element of our care services is to provide meals, hydration and prompt medication. In terms of food we can provide cold meals such as sandwiches, simple foods such as warming soup and toast, or microwaving ready meals. If time allows and the customer would prefer it we can cook meals from scratch.
It is essential older people hydrate, many illnesses are brought on, or made worse by a lack of fluids – we can encourage people to hydrate. Most of our customers take medication, we can prompt them to take medication out of a “blister pack” provided by the pharmacy. If medication does not arrive or a problem occurs we can follow this up with the GP, or pharmacy on a customer’s behalf.
