Senior Malnutrition

Nutrition is a critical component of healthy aging. If you are taking care of an elderly parent or acting as a caregiver of a senior, you should provide them with a balanced diet that is full of vitamins, minerals, proteins, healthy fats, and other essential nutrients.

"Let food be thy medicine and let medicine be thy food." A poor diet can make a senior more susceptible to a wide range of illnesses and accidents.

According to the Mayo Clinic, malnutrition can lead to the following health concerns:

*Weakened immune system

*Slow wound healing

*Muscle weakness or decreased bone mass

*Reduced cognition

These health issues increase the likelihood of hospitalization and death, so it's crucial to resolve malnutrition before an adverse event occurs.
