About this Event

Our 'Raising the Issue of Malnutrition' training aims to increase practitioners' knowledge and confidence around identifying and supporting older people at home in the community who are at risk, or are suffering from malnutrition. This training incorporates information on:

* Common signs and symptoms of malnutrition.

* Guidance around supporting individuals using Food First advice.

* Utilising simple tools such as armbands to identify at risk individuals.

* Gaining awareness in promoting good nutrition and hydration in older adults.

This training is open to Small Ideas, Big Impact grant holders and applicants, NHS, Local Authority, Carers, Volunteers, Voluntary Sector staff and other interested individuals who work to support older people.

*This training has been adapted from Age UK Salford, Nutrition and Hydration programme.

Eat Well Age Well is a project focused on tackling malnutrition in older adults living at home in Scotland and is part of Scottish charity Food Train.
