This paper is mainly targeted for MOWAA and other NGO’s concerned with the elimination of senior hunger. An important recommendation is for the organizations to ensure the elderly persons are provided with food rich in nutrition. This because these people are more prone to consuming less as a result of their poor economic conditions, their deteriorating immune systems and indoors life which reduces their exposure to essential things such as exercise and exposure to the sun. By doing this we will be able to significantly curb malnutrition among the elderly, reverse the situation n those who are already malnourished and reduce hospitalizations due to malnutrition. The ultimate is an improved quality of life for the elderly and as well a reduction in avoidable mortalities among the elderly.
The research is basically done using quantitative methods and questionnaires. These were used to gather the important nutritional information among the elderly on which this report is premised. Available information on the health status of senior citizens from MOWAA, historical health data and mortality rates as well as the causes of the mortality are central in the evaluation of the current state in order to forge and recommend the way to approach the question going forward.
The Meals on wheels association of America plays a very important role in ensuring our elderly people receive a meal at least every day and are able to live a comfortable life in their own homes. This report focuses on the various challenges facing the senior citizens culminating in their nutritional problems and therefore the goal is to recommend to MOWAA on the nutritional status and requirements of the elderly population. It is clear the elderly are experiencing progressive loss of activity and thus cannot on their own prepare quality food, they have financial problems and hence their prevalent malnutrition. It is therefore important to ensure the elderly get a dietary supply that is nutritionally rich.
