Case studies

To ensure the Better Care project really has the potential to transform the food landscape for older people, the Innovation Unit was commissioned by Food for Life to conduct in-depth research with people over 75 to build a richer understanding of the things that matter to them and their needs. These case studies show why the Better Care project is needed.
