Eating and drinking well


Eating and drinking well is crucial for maintaining good health. By following a healthy diet, you can prevent long-term health conditions like diabetes, heart disease, and high blood pressure. Missing meals or not drinking enough fluids can lead to symptoms such as:

  • Dizziness
  • Lethargy
  • Weakness

They can have severe consequences for older individuals or those with underlying health conditions. Poor physical health, depression, and loneliness can also lead to poor eating habits, causing as many as 1 in 4 people over the age of 65 to be at risk of malnutrition.

Malnutrition can cause symptoms like:

  • Weight loss or gain
  • Fatigue,
  • Swollen abdomen

While dehydration is indicated by thirst, dry skin, loss of appetite, light-headedness, and dark-coloured or-smelling urine. To address these issues, Bluebird Care offers customised home care services that cater to your needs and preferences. Our trained care workers understand the importance of nutrition and hygiene in maintaining wellbeing, ensuring your safety while preparing nutritious, delicious meals. We also work closely with healthcare professionals to support specialised diets or nutritional needs. To ensure that you receive individualised care, we create a personal support plan that takes your food preferences into account. However, it's also essential to discuss any concerns with your GP.
