Healthy Eating and Nutritional Needs for the Aging Adult

Some days, it feels like everything we read or hear about nutrition tells us new, and frequently conflicting, information about what to eat – and what not to eat. 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? What resources are available to help? 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.
