‘MealTimes Matter’ Its building on Protected Meal Times.
For many Protected Mealtimes became simply a sign at the door.
‘Mealtimes Matter’ aims to builds on the fundamental principles of Protected Mealtimes.
The making ‘Mealtimes Matter’ values are:
Manage the environment to allow people to eat in a welcoming, clean and tidy area
Ensure a relaxed atmosphere to enjoy the meal experience
Assist people who require help with eating and drinking
Limit non-essential interruptions to focus on providing support at meal times
Staff and visitors recognise the importance of meal times as part of basic care
We have put together a short presentation outlining the ‘Mealtimes Matter’ principles.
