For many of us masticating and swallowing are activities that go as a matter of course. For several frail elderly persons the consumption of food can be an everyday challenge. While in their sunset years and faced with dignified aging can a personalised nutrition concept contribute to the health and well-being of elderly consumers facing swallowing and/or masticating difficulties? The 14-partner consortium of the €3 Mil. EU funded project PERFORMANCE aims to answers such a question.
The main idea of the PERFORMANCE project is to develop and validate a holistic, personalised food supply chain for frail elderly persons living either in nursing homes, ambient assisted living facilities or at home (visited by nursing services) facing swallowing and/or masticating problems.
