We want to hear your views and experiences on the impact loneliness and social isolation has on older people and eating well.
The EWAW Twitter Chat will take place on Wed 2nd Sept from 10.30am – 11am. All you need to do to get involved is simply to follow us @EatWellScot and/or the hashtag #EWAWChat.
We will tweet a question every 5 minutes and you can tweet your replies by starting them with A1., A2., etc. – don’t forget to use the hashtag #EWAWChat otherwise we won’t see your messages.
Here’s a preview to the 5 questions we’ll be asking:
Q1. Tell us about you and what you / your organisation does to help address loneliness & social isolation in older people
Q2. How has covid-19 affected levels of social isolation amongst older people and their ability to eat well, age well and live well?
Q3. “Loneliness and social isolation are risk factors for malnutrition in older people”- Where have you seen this in your own work?
Q4. Going forward, what support is needed within communities to reduce loneliness and social isolation in older people throughout the pandemic and beyond?
Q5. What changes need to take place at a national / policy level to reduce the levels of loneliness and social isolation and subsequent malnutrition levels amongst older people in Scotland?
