Healthy Eating and Nutritional Needs for Aging Adults
Please let us know if you plan to join us for this in-person program.
Every adult needs proper and adequate nutrition. As we age, nutrition becomes even more important for health, functionality, and the ability to age in place and remain in the community. But as our parents age, they frequently find choosing and preparing meals challenging for a number of reasons – health conditions, medications, oral health and dental issues, depression and decreased hunger, impaired mobility and physical functioning, impaired vision, and/or impaired cognitive abilities. How do we know what our parents should and should not eat? How do we know if they are getting adequate nutrition? This program will help participants understand the link between nutrition and functioning as we age, assess their parent’s nutritional needs and patterns, and seek professional help if needed.
