Abstract

Malnutrition can lead to a number of health problems in older people. Good assessment of the older person's eating skills is as important as a nutritional assessment in at-risk groups and eating skills should be assessed using a holistic framework. In many cases adaptation of the environment and eating aids can assist in the maintenance of independent eating.
