Why We Counsel The Elderly
Malnutrition is one of the most common issues in the elderly population. This is due to a variety of reasons, including a poor or limited diet, decreased appetite, tooth loss, financial hardship, lack of transportation, living alone, medication side-effects, and difficulty cooking, among others. The elderly are also at greater need for certain nutrients, which makes proper nutrition absolutely essential for the most optimal health status.
Through nutrition therapy, we can collaborate on meal plans and simple recipes that will help you meet your macro- and micronutrient needs during this life stage. You will benefit from increased energy, alertness, and immunity.
How We Can Help
Our approach is fine-tuned to your personal needs. We will break everything down into small, manageable steps that will make healthy living a reality. By addressing your specific nutritional concerns and any obstacles to obtaining the best nutrition, we can help you prevent or reverse malnutrition so that you can be strong, healthy, and able to ward off disease and live longer.
