Malnutrition can result from an unbalanced diet, dental problems that make eating difficult or medication side effects that cause nausea. Short-staffed care facilities or caregivers with improper training can contribute to problem, failing to provide adequate supervision or assistance during mealtimes.

Signs of malnutrition include weight loss, bloated abdomen, sunken eyes, swollen and/or bleeding gums, dry and/or cracked skin, thinning hair, fragile bones, muscle loss and/or weakness, difficulty swallowing, hypotension, dizziness, fatigue, poor healing, confusion, mental decline and memory loss.
