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

LDN of the University of Rhode Island and SNE President. "With an increase in life expectancy, it is essential that older adults have the opportunity to remain independent at home and in the community."

The joint SNE, ADA and ASN position paper focuses on access to safe and adequate food for older adults in communities and addresses issues related to food insecurity, hunger and malnutrition, and food and nutrition programs serving older adults in community settings. According to the paper, nearly 13 percent of the U.S. population is age 65 and older and is living longer and growing in absolute numbers, with those aged 85 years and older the fastest-growing segment. Projections for 2030 estimate an increase to 72 million or 20 percent of the population.

With rising costs representing a significant factor for older people in making decisions about health care, the paper addresses food assistance programs, which may help reduce these costs by helping people stay in their homes. The paper asserts that some food assistance programs can support more people living healthfully and independently at home than those older adults living in a nursing facility. Recommendations for older adults include promoting healthful aging and optimal nutritional status as well as seeking out resources in their communities to help them remain independent as they age.
