What challenges do you face to eat and drink well?
15th March 2017
We have teamed up with Carers UK to find out more about how carers are helping the person they look after to choose, prepare and consume food and drink to stay healthy and well.
We’re asking you to help us identify the challenges, any potential solutions or tips. Your personal views and experiences are important to help us understand more about the issue.
Turning your feedback into a product to help
The aim is to be able to work out what could be developed into practical, innovative products that could help, e.g. nutrition monitoring, use of kitchen appliances and aids and adaptations.
In the past, we have used our expertise in human-centred design and technology development to understand the challenges around nutrition and hydration for people to begin to explore how technology can support improved nutrition.
Carers UK has used its extensive carer networks to undertake work over a number of years that has focused on issues relating to nutrition and hydration and have produced a number of advice and information resources, in partnership with specialist food producer Nutricia, to help carers in this area.
Complete a quick survey to share your views
Today we are launching an online survey for you to be able to share your experiences relating to being able to eat and drink well. Your feedback will help to inform the first stage of this research.
This survey will take approximately 15 minutes to complete and will be available until the 30th April 2017.
