The Importance of Senior Nutrition

nutritionGood nutrition is important for everyone, but it’s especially critical for seniors. When older adults don’t eat regular, healthy meals, they lack energy, feel confused and may be at a greater risk of falling or injuring themselves. When poor meal habits get out of control, older adults can experience a worsening of disease or debility.

Older adults who don’t follow their special diets are also at risk for medical problems. For instance, someone with cardiac disease may eat a salty, high-fat diet which can worsen their condition.
