Age needs one voice. Now it has:
Age UK is the new force combining Age Concern England and
Help the Aged in England.
Age UK has been campaigning to end malnutrition in hospitals since 2006.
Our Hungry to be Heard campaign tackled the scandal of older people becoming malnourished while in hospital, either because they don’t get food they can eat or the help they need to eat it.
You can read the NHS response to our calls.
Age UK is now working with others in a Malnutrition Taskforce to look at how to drive down preventable and avoidable malnutrition in hospitals, care homes and the community.
Have you, or someone you know, experienced malnutrition in hospital, a care home, or at home? Would you be happy to share your experiences with Age UK? If so, please contact us.
Have your say in the decisions that affect our lives, by joining an independent local forum.
By working together in local forums, we are making our voices heard on the issues that matter to us in later life, influencing the provision of services locally, regionally and nationally.
