Textured Modified Diets (using the IDSSI framework)

HD collaborates with Dining with Dignity to offer comprehensive training for chefs, catering teams, housekeepers, care home managers, carers, registered nurses, and activity coordinators. This training is designed for anyone involved in the preparation, cooking, and delivery of food to residents and individuals who may be at risk.

The training has specific learning outcomes for all individual teams. It includes practical demonstrations and advice for the kitchen staff on the preparation, cooking, and presentation of meals, as well as theory and practical demonstrations. The training uses the IDSSI framework.

Additionally, there is a workshop with group participation focused on the delivery of the meal service, understanding the importance of the dining experience and meeting individual nutrition and hydration needs.

While training can also be delivered remotely via Zoom, it's important to note that this method would not be suitable for chef practical training.
