James Clear, Care UK’s hotel services manager, has been shortlisted for the Catering Manager of the Year category of the National Association of Care Catering (NACC) annual awards.
The NACC awards celebrate excellence, innovation and education in care catering.
James said: “I am very excited and honoured to have been shortlisted for such an important award. The NACC has done a great deal to raise catering standards and increase the public’s awareness of the importance of hydration and nutritional balance for older people.”
James advises Care UK’s homes across the south of England, including East Anglia and Essex, and also delivers free public seminars to help people caring for older loved ones create nutritious meals.
The nutrition expert has designed a book, Eating As We Age, and is holding seminars in many of Care UK’s 117 homes to explain how to create nutritious meals that are easy to eat as well as being attractive.
The NACC winners will be announced on Thursday 6 October 2016 at the NACC Awards dinner, which takes place at the East Midlands Conference Centre, Nottingham, during the NACC Training & Development Forum 2016.
