Home Instead Senior Care in Harrogate, Ripon and Thirsk are on a mission to make sure their clients are eating nutritious meals and Stray FM's Nick Hancock has been along to find out more about the "stay nourished campaign."

 We all know the importance of eating healthy, balanced meals, but for many people in their later years, ill health can be accentuated by a poor diet. Plus, for those living alone, cooking can become a major chore as loneliness results in a lack of enthusiasm at mealtimes and ultimately a loss in appetite.

The care givers of Home Instead provide companionship during meals; can assist by making a freshly cooked, nutritious dish and of course, do the washing up too!

Vicious Circle

Malnutrition can increase chances of having to visit the doctor, or even result in a hospital admission. Medication can then affect appetite by altering taste and although patients can improve, once home, if they fail to eat better, the cycle begins once more.

Stray FM's Nick Hancock has been chatting to Lisa from Home Instead to learn more about the "stay nourished campaign."
