Nothing can be as dreary as eating the same dull meal day after day. None of us would enjoy it; however, many times, the elderly get stuck in a rut. Because it may only be one or two people in the house, cooking can become a chore, so eating a sandwich or a bowl of cereal is much easier. Changing taste buds and loose dentures can make eating tiring. The results are exacerbated health issues and possibly, malnutrition.
Keep healthy eating for your senior a priority when you take deliberate steps to incorporate variety into their menus. All it takes is some planning and a
properly stocked pantry. When you cannot do the cooking or your parent needs assistance in the kitchen, a
highly-trained caregiver from Home Instead Senior Care can
help fix nutritious meals.
