The City Council of Castell-Platja d’Aro has given a new impetus to the service of home meals designed for people with varying degrees of dependence, advanced age or vulnerabilities. SERHS Food provides this service, called SAD, focused on people, menus and home service. They have 10 different diets (and their combination with each other) with more than 130 specific dishes, prepared based on the Mediterranean diet, balanced, tasty and healthy. The needs of each person at a nutritional level are different and the home care service has been adapted to this requirement.
In an act of presentation and tasting of cooked dishes held on February 7, the Councilor for Social Action of the City Council, Pilar Ferrero, explained that the service has as a priority “the nutritional, physical and social well-being of users, avoiding risks of malnutrition or even domestic accidents cooking”. In this case, it is one more way of the services of attention to people of the municipality. The experience of a user, Piedad, was very illustrative of the service in which she found “a great solution for her case”.
Individual satisfaction is the fundamental pillar for SERHS Food, as Lourdes Catalán, head of the Department of Dietetics also recalled, and with which we built the entire service together with food safety. Starting from the guidelines that the professionals transmit, the team of dietitians elaborates the menus choosing the types of dishes, taking into account their nutritional quality and the ingredients that compose them.
Undoubtedly, it is a service for the future that will progress more and more in all municipalities to promote individualized attention, person to person, and to improve the well-being of those who need it most.

SECPhO, the cluster foodservice and the SERHS FOOD company work together to develop a solution that will improve the safety and efficacy of feeding of the patients with dysphagia.
Due to the aging of the population, dysphagia or difficulty for swallowing food, can be caused by a physical or mental problem and represents problems both to swallow liquids and solids. Based on parameters such as viscosity, texture or adhesiveness, among others.
