Prise en charge de la dénutrition de la personne âgée à domicile : Facteurs sociaux environnementaux associés à l'échelle dans le portage des repas à domicile - étude qualitative

Abstract : Objectives : Identify the account associated with the failure of the refeeding home in individuals aged undernourished receiving delivery of meals at home.Methods : Qualitative study by interviews semi led conducted 20 people recruited from the patientele of four general practitioners and two gerontologists. These people were to be undernourished in the portage of the meal (>= 5% in 1 month weight loss) Results : Older respondents do not perceive the medical need to maintain in a state of stable health, they often associate the portage of the meals with other medical reasons. They regretted the "tray" presentation and the absence of choice, associated with an infringement of their cultural identity.The social and family of the elderly environment influence food intake, people who lost the most weight are often isolated, and a human presence at the meals improving the effectiveness of the portage of meals. Discussion - conclusion: The portage of the meals on wheels seems to reinforce the isolation of individuals. It should ideally be limited to a short period of time, one in which mobility is reduced. In extension of this period, the presence of a home help during the meals combined with the delivery of meals appears be a more satisfactory solution.It's to promote collective, individual actions or intergenerational to promote friendly meals where human presence is a priority, as the experiences already made in other countries.
