CARE: Nutrition in Ageing

What are the nutritional needs of older people? What happens when older people become malnourished? What does a healthy diet look like? As a care provider for people in their later years, these and similar questions will be familiar to you.  Our bodies begin to function differently as we age, sometimes increasing vulnerability to illness and disease. Diet plays a vital role in preserving overall health and Carers play a vital role in supporting older people’s nutritional needs. With this in mind, it’s especially important to ensure that care-givers are well-equipped to offer the right dietary guidance.     This course provides key information about nutrition requirements for older people, the role nutrition can play in preventing disease, and how social setting can impact eating behaviour. Along the way, you’ll receive  tips and tools provided by healthcare professionals and experts – these are focused on enhancing the everyday health of older people.   Whether you are a caregiver, a medical student, a healthcare professional or someone with an interest in nutrition, this course will help you learn about nutrition in ageing so you can provide the best level of care.
