Nutrition for Older Adults
Gain Specialist Knowledge to Help Older Adults with our CPD Accreditation
This online e-learning course is accredited by CIMSPA.
In this course, you will learn about the specific nutrient requirements of older adults. As the proportion of adults over 65 continues to grow, more and more of your clients will fall into this category. Specialist knowledge of this key demographic is essential for all nutrition advisers.
Malnutrition is a surprisingly common problem in older adults and this course will teach how to screen for it using MUST (malnutrition universal screening tool) as well as how to prevent and manage it. You will also learn about an optimal diet for preventing disease and increase the lifespan of your clients.
This course is suitable for those who work with older adults in any capacity, whether as a nutrition adviser, personal trainer or in a care home setting.
Help make general nutritional recommendations for the elderly population and apply health eating principles to enable older adults to live a full, active life, preserving independence.
Malnutrition costs more than £7.3 billion every year, and over half of these costs are on people over the age of 65. Learn about the impact malnutrition can have on older people's health, and how to prevent it.
Learn about the importance of adequate nutrition to decrease the onset of chronic diseases and to help maintain functional independence.
Eating healthy can help extend your life and improve your health. Learn about the anti-ageing secrets that can help with a longer, healthier life.
You can attend this course online from the comfort of your own home.

The Pilates Matwork course was detailed, practical and challenging. The course content was delivered in a variety of ways i.e. online learning and face-to-face suiting learning styles. Scott and his team were very helpful at the end of the phone/online. I was lucky enough to walk straight into a Pilates teaching job as soon as I qualified. Thank-you FutureFit!
