Newton heath care home in full swing for Nutrition and Hydration WeekMonday 14th till Sunday 20th March is Nutrition and Hydration Week across the nation. And Averill House dementia care home, in Manchester, certainly didn’t hold back in marking the occasion, from a hydration station to a very own life-size banana, Averill House don’t do things be halves!

Wellbeing Coordinator Jodie Yates, wanted to go all out to promote good nutrition and hydration so organised a ‘Fruitation Hydration Station’ which was a mobile trolley used to visit all Residents and promoting healthy eating, good nutrition and lots of fluids to keep hydrated. 

On the station, they had homemade sparkling water with orange and lemon, fruit medley platters with strawberries and melon, natural yogurt and homemade fruit smoothies.

All Residents enjoyed being entertained with a giant banana host (see pictured).

Mina Shaw, who lives at Averill House, laughed, “This is great! And the drinks are fab!”

Jodie Yates added, “Residents particularly enjoyed the smoothies and the giant banana!”
