How to Help Your Senior Loved One Stick to a Nutrition Plan with Care at Home Services

Learn from Professional Care at Home Caregivers on How to Help Your Senior Loved One Stick to a Nutrition Plan in Bangor, ME & Surrounding Areas

For a senior’s health, many must follow certain diets to help or maintain the side effects of certain medical conditions. These diets can be for congestive heart failure, coronary artery disease, diabetes, hypertension, and more. Good nutrition can make a big impact on their health so let’s see how you can help your loved one follow a nutrition plan.

The Challenges of Senior Nutrition Plans

Sometimes it can be hard for seniors to follow these diets. Here are a few examples of how this can be:

  • Seniors’ metabolisms slow down, and they exercise less. A slower metabolism creates a need for low-calorie diets.
  • Taste, thirst and digestive systems change with age.
  • Difficulty swallowing or chewing.
  • Senior with memory challenges can forget they have or have not eaten.
  • They may forget what their diet should be.  
  • If they face a lack of motivation or want to follow the diet.
  • Depression or anxiety caused by the new diet.
  • Living alone can make it difficult to want to pay attention to eating right.
