With around 3 million people at risk of malnutrition in the UK and over 25 million in the G8 countries, we need to engage opportunities to raise the awareness of the risks and promote the good practices that can help prevent malnutrition and dehydration. To promote this important topic Chip and The Chase team have been out in the community visiting all of the local Healthcare Heroes. Their plan… to remind them all to stay hydrated & nourished as part of this years Nutrition & Hydration week. With goodie bags packed to the full of waters, fruits & some tasty snacks the team visited as many health and social care professionals as possible to remind them to take some time & look after themselves as it is very easy to forget when you are busy caring for others.
As well as GP surgeries, hospital wards & the district nursing hub, Chip made time to visit local businesses & schools to give out some additional goodie bags and to spread the mission to as many places in the local community as possible.
