Carmel Berke Julie Holt Marie Price Adam Sutcliffe Martin Hazlehurst Hayley Taylor-Cox Siobhan McKenna Overview why focus on malnutrition? Its a hidden problem 1 million people (1 in10) over the age of 65 are at risk of malnutrition and 93% of these are living at home

Its all around us - A third of recent arrivals to hospitals and care homes are already malnourished (or at risk) The consequences - For every 10 days a person over the age of 80 is in hospital they lose 10% of muscle mass

It is preventable Losing weight is not a natural part of growing old Its expensive Malnutrition costs the health and social care system around 20bn per year Why does it happen ? Social risks Loneliness Not worth cooking just for one My wife always did the cooking Physical risks Dentition Poor mobility and lack of access to local shopping Ability to prepare food and eat independently

Medical risks Crohns disease Cancer Dementia In many cases its preventable and treatable and not a natural consequence of old age! Malnourished people: the consequences Community-based intervention
