Caregivers, Help Seniors Eat Healthy

Senior Nutrition is a key to quality of life

 

Today’s Americans are more aware of the benefits of proper nutrition more than any other time in our history. Still, that doesn’t mean we all make the right choices. As we age, eating healthy and getting the proper nutrition from our food is more important than ever. According to the National Council on Aging, 80% of people who are over the age of 65 struggle with at least one type of chronic condition. Eating well, staying hydrated, getting a good night’s sleep, and exercising can make a huge difference in their health and sense of well-being.

It’s up to each family to decide the level of care needed, which we can adjust as needed.
