Nutrition services for older adults at home and in communities
Date:3/8/2010

INDIANAPOLIS, IN, MARCH 8, 2010 The Society for Nutrition Education (SNE) has partnered with the American Dietetic Association (ADA) and American Society for Nutrition (ASN) to publish a position paper, "Position of the American Dietetic Association, American Society for Nutrition, and Society for Nutrition Education: Food and Nutrition Programs for Community-Residing Older Adults," focusing on access to safe and adequate food and nutrition services, including nutrition education, for the increasing number of older adults who receive health care in their homes or communities rather than in nursing homes or other residential facilities.

The position paper is published in the March/April issue of SNE's Journal of Nutrition Education and Behavior and the March issue of Journal of the American Dietetic Association. It was written and issued jointly by SNE, ADA and ASN, and represents all three associations' official stance on this health issue:

Given the federal cost containment policy to rebalance long-term care away from nursing homes to home- and community-based services, it is the position of the American Dietetic Association, the American Society for Nutrition and the Society for Nutrition Education that all older adults should have access to food and nutrition programs that ensure the availability of safe, adequate food to promote optimal nutritional status. Appropriate food and nutrition programs include adequately funded food assistance and meal programs, nutrition education, screening, assessment, counseling, therapy, monitoring, evaluation and outcomes documentation to ensure more healthful aging. The growing number of older adults, the health care focus on prevention and the global economic situation accentuate the fundamental need for these programs

"We are pleased to have the opportunity to join both ADA and ASN in establishing a position on nutrition services for older adults," says Geoffrey Greene, PhD, RD,
