Intercultural Aspects of Food in Later Life

Material Language: 

This presentation was made during the IFITS International Days 2014. It presents the situation of older migrants in Germany and their relationship to the professional care systems. It describes the challenges organisations are facing when it comes to meet the needs and wishes of migrants concerning food in later life. An important goal is to raise awareness on the topic regarding the relevant target groups and stakeholders. As an example, the experiences of participants during a learning day that took place within the FILL Partnership are presented, including the pedagogical approach, learning materials and evaluation results.
