Part of the Family Caregiver Support Series, sponsored by Home Instead Senior Care®
Includes complimentary CEUs*
The importance of proper nutrition for seniors simply cannot be overstated. Poor nutrition can affect the mind, the body, the immune system and energy levels in ways seniors and their families may not be aware of. The more families know about the aging factors that can affect eating habits, the easier it will be to ensure their senior loved one maintains a healthy diet.
Participants in this web seminar will be able to:
- Recognize the causes and warning signs of poor nutrition;
- Understand the nutritional guidelines for older adults;
- Identify the potential risks associated with lack of mealtime companionship; and,
- Recommend ways to manage specific dietary concerns.
