Sophie’s topic of discussion will be headed ‘The Journey to Nutritious Food and Nutritional Care’ and she will share her journey, with successes and pitfalls, as well as some first-hand nutritional tips. Expectations are now greater than ever, for nutritional homemade foods when caring for the elderly and Sophie’s experience as an expert in the field of nutrition, a nurse and former restaurant owner is invaluable.
Only a few months ago Sophie was delighted to win the Hydration Award 2013, at the NACC Annual Conference and Exhibition, National Awards gala dinner. This event honours the teams and individuals that have demonstrated real excellence, dedication, innovation and achievements throughout the year.
This NACC (National Association of Care Catering) event will be a day packed with plenty of learning and networking opportunities and takes place at Sunningdale Park, near Ascot.
