Policy Statement

This policy together with a separate Hydration policy shows how this care service meets service users’ nutritional and hydration needs when required. Both policies are in line with Regulation 14: Meeting Nutritional and Hydration Needs of the Health and Social Care Act 2008 (Regulated Activities) Regulations 2014, which requires care providers to ensure that it meets fully the nutritional and hydration needs of all service users where they are responsible for providing them with food and drink.

As a domiciliary care organisation we are committed to meeting service users nutritional and hydration needs as part of its service provision if required. A healthy, nutritious and balanced diet is of vital importance for the health and wellbeing of service users and care staff should wherever appropriate, support service users in all aspects of achieving an adequate diet, including where they have special dietary needs and preferences.
