Training Overview Description

Description:

The importance of proper nutrition for older adults cannot be understated. However, for some older adults, it can be hard to get motivated to cook nutritious meals, especially for those who live alone. According to the U.S. Census Bureau, about 28 percent (13.8 million) of community-dwelling older adults live alone, which could put them at risk for poor nutrition. Malnutrition can affect the mind, body, immune system and energy levels in ways older adults and family caregivers may not be aware of. Older adults who eat meals with others take in more nutrients and reap additional benefits like decreased loneliness. Join this webinar to learn how companionship is often the missing ingredient in a healthy diet for an older adult.

Participants in this webinar will be able to:

  • Recognize the causes and warning signs of poor nutrition

  • Identify the potential risks associated with eating alone

  • Understand the benefits of companionship at mealtime

  • Discover resources to support nutritious meals for older adults
