Food and drink should meet people's individual dietary needs (outcome 5)

Meeting this standard

We checked that people who use this service

  • Are supported to have adequate nutrition and hydration.

How this check was done

Our judgement

The provider was meeting this standard.

People were protected from the risks of inadequate nutrition and dehydration.

User experience

One person told us that ‘the staff cook me nice food’.

Staff members spoken to said that they ask people what they would like for their meals and are able to make changes to the planned menu to accommodate individual preferences.

Other evidence

A weekly planned menu was displayed in the dining area. We saw that information about individual dietary needs was kept in the kitchen area for some people who use the service along with guidance for staff around pureed food.

A care plan seen for one person included records of their food intake.
