Toolkit: The “New Normal” Way of Providing Key Nutrition Services to Seniors

The COVID-19 public health emergency continues to change the ways in which the aging network is meeting the needs of older adults. Over the past several weeks, senior nutrition programs have shown great leadership and innovation as they altered their service models to provide meals and groceries to older adults in new and creative ways. Looking ahead, as states begin the process of reopening, the Administration for Community Living, in partnership with staff at the National Resource Center on Nutrition and Aging (NRCNA), and the Academy for Nutrition and Dietetics’ Healthy Aging Dietetic Practice Group, will talk about ways for transitioning to ‘new normal’ operations for senior nutrition programs. The National Resource Center on Nutrition and Aging, at Meals on Wheels America, with support from the Administration for Community Living, on May 19, 2020 discussed how your organization’s efforts align with this emerging guidance and be a part of the ongoing conversation.

In this webinar attendees:
• Identified an approach to returning to new normal operations for senior nutrition program providers;
• Recognized opportunities to leverage virtual platforms to provide nutrition education and counseling for seniors served by your organization
