Our local health priorities
Prevention of malnutrition in older people
We're working with health and social care providers, within local communities and directly with older people themselves. Older adults are at increased nutritional risk because of the ageing process.
There is a need to dispel the myth that becoming thinner is a natural part of ageing.
A locally produced “Short Guide for Older People Who Are Underweight” is available. The guide includes information on what signs and symptoms to look out for, helpful tips for meal planning and signposting to useful contacts for health professionals, family members or for your own use.
To find out more, contact our Senior Health Promotion Specialist for Food and Health, Liz Fox, or order direct from the Health Promotion Resource and Information Service on 0117 922 2290.
