Promoting well-nutrition in elderly care
One of the main goals of the European Ageing Network (EAN) is to help enhancing the quality of long-term care. Nutrition is an important part of the quality of elderly care and good nutrition promotes generally health related quality of life.
Therefore it is important to not only be aware of this fact and make nutrition an element of the complex approach to elderly but also to share good practices examples, knowledge, recommendations and innovative solutions.
The European Ageing Network addressed experts in nutrition in whole Europe to start an EAN Nutrition working group and to create a document and guidelines that would and could be an everyday tool and assistant in the journey towards optimal well-nutrition care.
The outcome that you hold in your hands would be not possible without the initiative from our partners and members but also without all the experts that worked over a year on this document.
It’s our hope that this document will help the long-term care providers to meet their main mission – to enable the older persons high quality of life, with dignity, joy and happiness.
