Food and laundry under the microscope at Electrolux’s excellence workshop

Care England’s chief executive, Martin Green told guests at Electrolux Professional’s Care Excellence Workshop that amid a rising number of residents with multiple illnesses, providing comforting food as well as ensuring the hygienic cleanliness and freshness of linen and personal clothing can create a positive, personal experience within the communal care environment.

Electrolux’s annual event gathered professionals from around the care sector to discuss best practice, hygiene and efficiency in kitchen and laundry operations.

Following Mr Green’s address, visitors received both a talk and practical demonstration on preventing infection in the laundry process by Electrolux Professional’s care segment manager, Amanda Dufrane.

With food proven to evoke positive memories in dementia patients, those attending also took part in a smell and taste test with the manufacturer’s training and demonstration chefs, before a demonstration on using kitchen equipment to comply with HACCP guidelines on food safety.

“This year’s Care Excellence Workshop was a huge success, as we once again looked to provide support for those working within the sector, and we’d urge anybody interested to contact us to see how the latest information and technology can help them to deliver a continued  positive experience for all.”
