We also hear from Sheryl Davis, home manager at Brandon House in Coventry, who explains why they signed up for Age UK’s Postcards of Kindness initiative. Sending and receiving postcards from around the world has led to the setting up of a real-life post office in the care home and this has been a real hit with residents and carers.
We also talk to the National Association of Care Catering’s new National Chair Sue Cawthray about nutrition and resident wellbeing. She’s held the post role before and has some great ideas of how the NACC can support care homes and tackle ongoing challenges around funding. She also announces the launch of the Care Chef of the Year.
In our supplier interview we are delighted to chat to Nicola Whittaker, national account manager at leading laundry and dishwasher equipment manufacturer Miele Professional. She passes on some great tips on laundry infection control and tells us how care homes can benefit from effective laundry room design and layout
