What we eat has a profound effect on our bodies and minds and the connection between food and health is important at all stages of our lives. Nutrition plays a vital role in our health and wellbeing and eating well remains of utmost importance in later life. As we get older chewing and swallowing difficulties, poor health, a smaller appetite and other factors may make it harder to get the right nutrients in the right amounts.
Our specialist Care and Retirement Living business Caterplus provides catering services to residents in care homes, extra care and assisted living schemes, retirement villages and independent living developments. We also cater for hospital patients and provide hospital retail services- all of which require a specialist understanding of the nutritional requirements of these settings. We recognise the vital importance of the role we play as caterers in supporting people lead healthier lives and this commitment is underpinned by the You & Life programme which brings together in the UK business all of Elior’s activity in the fields of health, nutrition and wellbeing with the goal of helping people to lead healthier lives.
