Food poisoning can cause serious illness and even death, particularly in the elderly. This is especially important in residential care settings where food is being prepared and served to large numbers, and where service users are at particular risk from foodborne illnesses.


Older people may be more likely to suffer from food poisoning and become ill because aging weakens the immune system’s ability to fight infection. Food poisoning can cause serious illness and even death, particularly in the elderly. This is especially important in residential care settings where food is being prepared and served to large numbers, and where service users are at particular risk from foodborne illnesses. So it is important to take extra care when dealing with food intended for people in residential care.
