health and nutrition for older adults

Ageing should mean enjoying food more not less

As you get older, lifestyles and appetites change which affects the types and amounts of food we eat. A decreasing appetite or reduced ability to buy and prepare healthy foods can mean that many older people don’t get enough essential vitamins, minerals and fibre, and this can contribute to general unwellness or exacerbate some chronic illness.

Food and nutrition can have a significant impact to quality of life by meeting the physical, functional and experiential needs of clients.
