Lakeland Dairies and NAPA launch survey to help develop food-based activities in care homes

Lakeland Dairies has teamed up with NAPA, the UK’s leading charity promoting well-being in care services.

In partnership, the two organisations are inviting anyone involved in preparing food or providing activities in care homes to take part in a short survey.

The aim is to learn more about how catering teams and activity teams can work together, and then use these findings to help create fun, fulfilling food-based activities for care-home residents.

As part of this, Lakeland Dairies and NAPA will develop useful materials for catering and activity teams to use when combining their skills.

The ultimate goal is to enhance the everyday wellbeing of people living in care homes, and the survey will be crucial in helping improve understanding of what really makes a difference when providing food-based activities.

The questions for catering staff and activity providers will cover their experiences of, and views on, working together to provide enjoyable activities involving food.

It’s easy to join in the survey online, and it will take no more than 15 minutes to complete. Participants take part anonymously, and all the information they supply remains strictly anonymous.

“We want as many people as possible to take part in the survey. With our friends at NAPA, we believe there’s a genuine opportunity to enrich the lives of care-home residents through activities with food. The findings of our survey will be vital in designing and developing initiatives that achieve this.”
Jean Cattanach, marketing controller, Lakeland Dairies.
