Special Issue: Home- and Community-Based Meal Services for Older Adults
The goal of this Special Issue of the Journal of Nutrition in Gerontology and Geriatrics is to feature state-of-the-field original articles that provide research-based insight into different programs and approaches that deliver nutrition-related home- and community-based services (HCBS). This is the first single body of work that details many facets of evidence regarding these programs, and it may serve to suggest needed research to inform how these programs might work most effectively in the future.
