Our report, State of the Nation, shines a light on the scale and challenges of malnutrition in later life in the UK today. The report brings together information, statistics and evidence from across the health and social care system to provide a unique snapshot of what is happening to older people who are malnourished or at risk of malnutrition.
As we age and life changes, our appetites and nutritional needs can change and sometimes we may find it harder to eat enough to maintain good health and wellbeing. The Malnutrition Task Force have produced the booklet, Eating Well in Later Life, to bring together helpful and practical tips on eating and keeping well as life changes.
The Malnutrition Task Force has developed this resource pack to help identify those at risk of undernutrition. It brings together screening tools that have been developed for use in the community by non-clinical staff, including volunteers and carers who work with older people, or by older people and their families.

Having conversations around death and dying can be a very difficult subject for many people. It can bring up uncomfortable emotions so people tend to shy away from it. Research shows that over a third (36%) of people aren't comfortable bringing up the subject with a relative or close friend and (40%) do not know their loved ones' wishes around dying, such as what their preferred type of burial, would be.
We regularly review the statistics and try to keep them as up to date as possible. Last update: August 2019
