Eat Well Age Well is a national project tackling malnutrition in older people living at home in Scotland, specifically those who are under-nourished and not eating enough.
Estimates show 1 in 10 older people in Scotland are at risk or suffering from malnutrition, which equates to 103,000 people. In the 21st century, we think this is unacceptable and we work to develop initiatives that will make a difference to older people.
What We Do
- Develop and provide resources including leaflets, videos and guides to help raise awareness and aid the prevention of malnutrition.
- Deliver training on ‘Raising the Issue of Malnutrition’ for those who works, cares or volunteers with older people.
- Deliver the REHIS Eating Well for Older People course.
- Our ‘Small Ideas, Big Impact’ fund provides small grants between £50 - £5000 for projects and ideas that will help support older people to eat well and combat malnutrition.
- Work in partnership with Food Train and the University of Glasgow on a research study into the prevalence of malnutrition in Scotland.
- Develop our own ‘Tests of Change’ projects to identify what does and doesn’t work in addressing malnutrition in older people.
