In a care home or your own home, it’s important that you enjoy your food, have enough to eat and drink, and get the help you need to eat and drink when you need it.
What to expect
When anyone is admitted into hospital or a care home, they should expect to be weighed. This is an important measurement that tells if patients are undernourished and if they need a special diet, gadgets or implements to make eating easier. If there is concern about your nutritional status, you should expect to have a nutritional assessment from either a specially trained nurse or a dietitian.
