For Larchfield House hydration is very important, all communities have their own hydration stations for cold drinks, juices, water, tea and coffee which are always available. To celebrate hydration week our communities have decorated their trolleys with lots of colour and choice. All fluid intake is measured and recorded on a daily basis to ensure that our residents are having the recommended fluid intake. Staff are trained to encourage our residents to have their refreshments throughout the day.
All hydration stations are the same to residents can relate and recognise when they see them. We also have our reflections café, where residents and their families visit on a regular basis and enjoy the atmosphere with a cup of tea and a piece of cake.
