The International Dysphagia Diet Standardisation Initiative (IDDSI) is a global standard with terminology and definitions to describe texture modified foods and thickened fluids used for individuals with dysphagia of all ages, in all care settings, and for all cultures. The IDDSI framework consists of a continuum of 8 levels (0-7). Levels are identified by text labels, numbers, and colour codes to improve safety and identification. The standardised descriptors and testing methods will allow for consistent production and easy testing of thickened liquids and texture modified foods.

My mother spent a brief, but much happier, time here following an extremely unhappy 3 year period in her previous care home.

The staff were professional, kind and caring and I would recommend that people visit this home to see what it can offer.

My husband has been in Lehmann House for 9 months and the care he receives is great. The carers are kind and gentle. He is treated with respect as am I. I feel part of his care and can visit whenever I like.

I am always kept up to date if there are any problems and if a doctor visits they advise me so I can be there if needed to be.

My mum has been here for over 2 years, she is well looked after and we don’t have to worry about her as she has 24 hour care, and she is extremely happy. All the staff are very friendly and caring and welcome us when we visit and it has such a lovely atmosphere, they have a lot of entertainment which is great for the residents.
