Established in 2012, the Malnutrition Task Force raises awareness and provides information and practical guidance for everyone to help combat preventable undernutrition and dehydration in later life.
1 in 10 people over the age of 65 are malnourished or at risk of malnutrition.
Undernutrition can affect anyone. It simply means that some older people are not eating or drinking enough to maintain their health and wellbeing. Unintended weight loss often goes unnoticed until it begins to affect a person’s health.
