Event Details

Join us during national 'Nutrition and Hydration Week' on Friday 15th March, any time between 11am and 2pm, to hear from a broad range of organisations supporting older people's nutrition and hydration - and to play the 'Food in Later Life' game.

We'll also be presenting the results of research YouGov did for Home Instead Senior Care into the eating habits of older generations in Britain. We commissioned this after our own research found that more than a quarter (26%) of people looking for home care support for elderly relatives were worried about what, how much and with who their relatives were eating - making it their biggest worry.
