Senior Momentum: Weekend A Plus

Shining the spotlight on aged care nutrition"THE letters began to arrive as soon as Maggie Beer announced her intention to do something about the standard of food in Australia’s aged-care homes.  What began as a trickle became a steady flow of thanks, much of it from the families of elderly Australians desperately unhappy at seeing their loved ones exist on meals of tinned soup, tasteless pre-frozen vegetables and supermarket sausage rolls.

In one letter, a woman tells Beer of her horror at learning residents at an aged-care home were fed a single party pie and a quarter of a buttered slice of bread for dinner; another correspondent, so disgusted by the meals dished up to her elderly parents, is now volunteering in the kitchen and begs Beer for advice on how to make things better."
