Nutricia Advanced Medical Nutrition - Carers Week supporter

Nutricia Advanced Medical Nutrition is the UK’s largest provider of specialist medical nutrition products and services.

We believe in the power of nutrition to make a positive and proven difference to health. And it’s our expert understanding of nutrition that means we have an important role in making this happen.

We focus our time and energy on pioneering nutritional solutions to meet both existing and emerging health needs. Our ambition is to establish medical nutrition as an integral part of healthcare. Our products are developed to meet the specific nutritional needs associated with a variety of conditions and diseases.

We also provide a wide range of support services that meet the needs of patients and healthcare professionals alike. For example, through our Nutricia Homeward service we deliver medical nutrition products, tube feeding systems and nursing care directly to about 29, 000 patients’ homes across the UK.

To ensure that patients have access to the right nutritional care when they need it the most, we work closely and collaboratively with a variety of organisations and healthcare professionals.

Carers UK and Nutricia have worked in partnership for over 8 years now and have brought to light the previously hidden issue of the daily struggles that carers face in ensuring that their loved ones get the nutrition they need. Our work together has helped to improve the quality of life for those they care for and for carers themselves. Using our mutual expertise, we have provided much needed support to carers around nutritional problems and eating difficulties, through information resources, training, social media and website information.

“As Nutricia Advanced Medical Nutrition (AMN) we are proud to continue to support Carers Week and the important ‘Getting Carers Connected’ theme. As an organisation we know that some colleagues are also juggling working and caring for a loved one and Carers Week provides us with a platform to raise awareness of the support that is available, should they need it, so that as a carer they feel connected.

"Nutrition is integral to health and well-being and it is important that if you have a caring role that you are looking after yourself and meeting your own nutritional needs, but also that you feel confident in providing the right food for the person you are caring for. Through the information and resources that Nutricia Advanced Medical Nutrition and Carers UK have developed in collaboration with carers, we are striving to make available the right information at the right time for carers, for them to feel confident that they know how, when and where to seek further support if needed.”
