ZeST Food In Later Life

In partnership with

A version of the board game for use with TEAMS, ZOOM, SKYPE.

This game will help anyone interacting, working or volunteering with older people to understand how to help the older generation remain “food secure” by understanding the difficulties they face, from mobility and health issues, to lack of rest areas in shops and poor transport links. It helps players to consider the things we can do to help older people continue to live independently and access the food they want to eat.

  • ZeST replicates the benefits of face-to-face games in a simple web-based tool that anyone can use. It does not require any training or special technology.

    ZeST games are designed to be played during group meetings on Zoom, Skype, Teams, WebEx. There is no direct link between ZeST and these meetings platforms. The facilitator just shares their ZeST screen with the group.

    The actual games are designed to be very simple to manage allowing the facilitator to concentrate on encouraging and maintaining group discussions.

    ZeST games will help you to recreate the energy and discussions you’d get during a face-to-face game.

    A single licence gives you unrestricted access to a specific game on the ZeST platform for 12 months. A single licence allows one online game session to be run at any time. However, you can invite as many participants as you wish to each session and you can organise as many back-to-back game sessions as you need. You can also purchase additional licenses.

  • This game will help anyone interacting, working or volunteering with older people to understand how to help the older generation remain “food secure” by understanding the difficulties they face, from mobility and health issues, to lack of rest areas in shops and poor transport links. It helps players to consider the things we can do to help older people continue to live independently and access the food they want to eat.

    The game uses question cards to help players understand what makes an older person food insecure and think about how we can ensure older people continue to enjoy the food they want to eat. Scenario cards ask players to identify issues faced by an older person in a particular situation and think about how the issues could be overcome.

    Topics covered include:

    • What is food security?
    • Who is vulnerable to food insecurity and why?
    • Common issues faced when shopping, cooking or eating
    • Methods to improve access to food
    • Role of supermarkets and retailers
    • Role of community and voluntary organisations
    • Solutions to the issues faced by older people

     

    The Food in Later Life Game can be used in training, for induction of new staff or a refresher for existing staff. It can be woven into formal training programmes, or used for informal learning in the workplace, in community groups or in education settings.
