Care Transitions

Care transitions happen when an individual moves from one setting or location of care to another. These transitions can put older adults at risk for health issues, including malnutrition, but planning can help ensure that older adults and caregivers have the resources they need to transition safely. Meals and other nutrition services can be vital to successful care transitions. Understanding transitions can help you expand your program’s reach.
