Nutritious Meal Planning Leads to Healthier Seniors
As people age, they may experience a decline in their cognitive abilities, which can make meal planning difficult. Research has shown that seniors who live alone are more likely to experience poor nutrition and malnutrition, due to the fact that they may not be able to prepare meals that meet their nutritional needs. That’s why it’s important for seniors to have help with meal planning, from either a family member or a professional caregiver.
