Person centered dining in Care Homes

22 January 2021

As the number of tech-savvy and health aware care home residents rise, there will be a greater need for a more person centered approach at meal times.

Resident expectations will only get higher and offering a wider variety of food choices in Care Homes, Retirement Villages and Care Centres places them in a better position to attract and satisfy more residents.

In 2018, the Department of Health and Social Care reported that “the state of online services, basic IT and clinical tools in health and care” was “far behind” where it needed to be. The COVID-19 pandemic has quickly forced a “huge uptake in digital solutions in the care sector”, much like many workplaces across the world. Kafoodle CEO Tarryn Gorre says: “it’s as if the care sector has suddenly catapulted five years into the future.”

Kafoodle’s user-friendly software means that everybody involved in the mealtime journey from the chefs to the diner can now easily access and adjust the information as needed, creating an unprecedented level of food choice and safety while simplifying the process and building trust.
