Caterplus serves up Food Cards range

Caterplus – the care arm of contract caterer Elior – has introduced a new range of Food Cards that have been developed to help dementia residents in care homes make informed food choices at mealtimes.

Each card portrays a different meal choice, exactly how it would appear on a plate and is shown to dementia residents before mealtimes to help them decide what they would like to eat. The Caterplus Food Cards have been carefully curated to be visually engaging and easy to follow for dementia residents. To avoid any confusion and to encourage food choices, the Cards dish images are consistent and include cutlery. Each A5 image is accompanied by information detailing where the food sits on the International Dysphagia Diet Standardisation Initiative (IDDSI) framework, giving carers a quick reference as to its suitability for each resident.  There is also guidance on how the dish can be adapted to make them suitable for IDDSI levels.
