5 Tips For Your Dining Environment

5 Tips For Your Dining Environment

Mealtimes are a big part of your residents’ lives, an area often scrutinised by CQC inspectors with Regulation 14: Meeting nutritional and hydration needs.

How enticing is your dining environment? We like these 5 tips found recently in My Home Life.

Good Lighting

  • Is the dining area well lit?
  • Is the area without shadows or glare that might cause distress?

Signage and Sounds

  • Are there signs to the dining room that are clear and visible for residents and visitors?
  • Is background noise and activity in the dining room helping to encourage happy mealtimes – just as in any home? If there is music, is it chosen by the residents?
  • Do residents prefer a buzz of activity during mealtimes or a quiet calm environment?
