Tast’Age – A training to combat malnutrition among senior citizens

Tuesday, March 12th, 2024
12.00 – 12.30 pm

Nowadays, physiological changes with age exacerbate vulnerability to malnutrition and dehydration. Oral and dental issues, reduced taste and smell, medication effects, and metabolic changes affect food intake and pleasure in eating. Malnutrition accelerates frailty, leading to various health issues like infections, falls, muscle loss, and psychological effects. Inadequate nutrition impacts mobility, cognition, oral health, dependency, and social isolation. TAST’AGE aims to interrupt the malnutrition spiral.

To combat this, the partners in the Tast’Age project have been working for over a year and a half on the creation of a training program to combat malnutrition among senior citizens.

At AgeingFIT 2024, Tast’Age partners will be unveiling their new training course.

Whether you are a healthcare professional, a medico-social professionals professional, working for a homecare service or a VET provider, sign up to find out more about Tast’Age training!
