Focusing on the importance of ensuring that vulnerable and frail adults (particularly older people) living in their own homes, or in other community settings such as care homes, eat well and healthily, the aim of this document is to improve standards of nutrition for people living in the community. It is in two parts. Part 1 contains a pathway showing the framework of advice and support available to people who either care for those living in community settings or whose professional work brings them into contact with people who may have eating difficulties. It includes a commentary with notes for the general public and community organisations, and for health care professionals. Part 2 contains a resource pack with publications, advice leaflets, links to other sources of information, sample risk classifications and care plan templates, designed to help people using the pathway to source information needed to manage situations effectively.

Following its successful passage through Parliament the Commissioner for Older People (Wales) Act 2006 received Royal Assent on 25th July. The Act empowers the Assembly to establish an independent Commissioner with a wide range of powers to help ensure that the interests of older people in Wales, who are aged 60 or over, are safeguarded and promoted and that services are improved to meet their needs. The Commissioner will be able to act as a source of information, advocacy and support for older people, to encourage best practice in their treatment and to examine individual cases (where wider issues of principle are involved.) He or she will also be able to review the effect on older people in Wales of the discharge of, proposed discharge, or failure to discharge, functions by certain public bodies. These bodies will include the Welsh Assembly Government, local authorities, fire and rescue authorities, Local Health Boards, NHS Trusts, and further and higher education corporations. The overall aim is to ensure that the work of public bodies has a positive impact on, and takes account of, the needs of older people.
