What is ROC?
ROC is a simple new hydration assessment tool that identifies a person's 'reliance on a carer' (ROC) to drink and eat, and highlights their potential risk of poor food intake and dehydration, based simply on the amount of support needed to eat and drink.
The ROC tool is quick and easy to use and adopts a holistic approach to basic hydration care. It assesses a person's reliance on a carer for communication, manual handling, mouth care, continence, eating and drinking. ROC to drink and ROC to eat focus specifically on level of support needed for: Swallow - Assistance - Encouragement
ROC helps care providers meet Care Quality Commission Regulation 14: Meeting nutritional and hydration needs. ROC can help to reduce unplanned acute admissions from the community related to avoidable dehydration in the elderly and frail population.
