Mealtimes can be challenging for older adults. While a little bit of an appetite loss is normal with age, many seniors undergo other changes that make eating feel more like a chore than a joy. Conditions like Alzheimer’s and dementia can make it more difficult for the elderly to focus on food or remember to eat. Similarly, seniors may be experiencing physical changes that can make it harder to cook and serve themselves food. In other cases, there may be emotional hurdles that make mealtimes feel daunting. Food is one of the cornerstones of our culture and is one of the biggest keys to helping seniors live happy, healthy lives. What can you do to make eating a pleasant, approachable and a healthy experience for your elderly loved ones? This workshop will teach you how all the tips needed to make mealtime easier.
