The Care Inspectorate and Vegetarian for Life have developed a new resource, Good care for vegetarians and vegans. This is a self-evaluation and improvement tool to help care home staff and inspectors to understand what good care for vegetarians and vegans might look like, in relation to quality indicator 1.3: People’s health benefits from their care and support.
Key areas include the extent to which people experience:
- care and support based on relevant evidence, guidance, best practice and standards; in particular, the Health and Social Care Standards
- food and drink that meets their needs and individual preferences
- a positive attitude from others towards their vegetarian or vegan identity.
The webinar will support the launch of the resource and will include speakers from the Care Inspectorate and Vegetarian for Life.
