Balanced Nutrition Leads To A Healthier Life.
Healthful eating enhances the vitality and well-being of seniors. On the other hand, poor nutrition weakens seniors and leaves them vulnerable to illness.
Good eating is good medicine
Through Interactive Caregiving™, our caregivers help make sure seniors consistently eat a nutrient-rich diet that promotes good health. They often share meals with their clients because they know that companionship at mealtime stimulates the appetite—more so than eating alone.
Our caregivers also encourage their clients to participate in meal preparation—an activity that makes mealtime more than just nutritionally enriching.
The benefits of good nutrition are many:
- Improved energy and feeling of wellness
- Strengthened immunity
- Sharpened mental focus
- Stronger bones and muscles
- Improved weight control, digestion and regularity
- Better cardiovascular health
- Reduced incidence of mood swings and depression, and so much more
As we age, we face a growing number of obstacles to getting proper nutrition. However, caregivers can head off seniors’ nutrition problems before they become a health threat by being observant.
