With care plans running up to 100 printed pages, providers are increasingly turning to kitchen management software to support their CQC nutrition and allergen responsibilities. With Caternet, care organisations build recipes and menus using live data from their suppliers.
Better outcomes in Care Catering
Going paperless means nutrition per serving is automatically calculated, with allergenic ingredients tracked and cross-referenced – transforming your Regulation 14 risk management to ensure service users are protected from the risks of inadequate nutrition and hydration.
Engaging your Catering Managers and Chefs to create recipe cards using a bank of meal preparation steps creates a digital record. This is accessible to service users and care professionals alike.
Organisations that share menus to apps or websites can build trust with families, removing dietary concerns around religious and cultural backgrounds. This saves time spent manually updating meal plans as menus change.
Around 16% of the UK population is aged over 65, with over 400,000 living in a Care environment. The UK’s care estate comprises 5,500 different providers, operating 11,300 sites between them.
The average cost of self-funded care is now £846 per week. With many service users seeking value, it is possible to balance healthcare with restaurant-quality meals.
These expectations place a further squeeze on labour and ingredient costs. With sharp increases in population, allergies and complex needs, Caternet is well placed to support your care operation and kitchens through Regulation 14.
