Elderly people have very different nutritional needs than regular adults. Meeting these needs can be challenging, especially if the older person also has difficulty with chewing, swallowing or preparing the food themselves. This is the reason why we at Tri-Med Home Care Services provide nutrition assistance services.
Nutrition Assistance for Elderly

What Are the Main Nutrition Requirements for Seniors?

One of the biggest concerns as we age is adequately maintaining bone health. Because of this, seniors need to get more calcium and Vitamin D than most younger adults. They should have at least three calcium-rich servings of food every single day – dairy products, fortified cereals, broccoli, canned fish, and so on.

Furthermore, seniors also need to eat plenty of foods containing fiber to help maintain digestive health and keep their bowel movements regular. Seniors are at a much greater risk of suffering from constipation, and this can lead to discomfort and other health problems. Fiber-heavy foods include bran, whole-grain bread, beans, and peas.

Last but not least, older adults should also make sure that they are getting enough potassium in their diets, which can help to reduce the risk of high blood pressure. Potassium can be found in abundance in vegetables and fruit such as beans and bananas.

How Does Nutrition Assistance Work?

Our nutrition assistance experts approach each case by finding out exactly what an elderly patient is eating on a daily basis. From there, they will work to improve their diet and general eating habits.

If the elderly client is still able to prepare their own meals, the Nutrition Assistant will teach them how to prepare healthier dishes that are really quick and easy to make. Alternatively, they will work closely with the elderly client’s caregiver in the same way.

The end result is a nutrient-dense diet that can ward off sickness, boost energy, and help to control symptoms associated with already-existing chronic conditions.
