Look Out for Signs of Malnutrition
If your loved one lives independently, they could be experiencing malnutrition. There are a variety of factors that can cause poor nutrition and eating habits for seniors. With the senior care assistance of Visiting Angels® Detroit, your loved one can maintain a healthy lifestyle at home.
Common Signs of Malnutrition and How Our Senior Care Assistance in Detroit Can Help
You may be wondering why your loved one is struggling with malnutrition. There are many factors that can contribute to this problem. Dementia can cause your loved one to forget to eat regularly. Certain medications can also cause a lack of hunger. If you feel your loved one is experiencing any of these causes, you can talk with their doctor and get a plan of action.
Malnutrition is often discovered through the effects it has on your loved one. One sign of malnutrition is increased illness due to a weakened immune system. Another sign is poor wound healing. Without proper nutrients, your loved one's body is unable to fight off diseases and heal itself. This is one reason why it is important to encourage good nutrition for elderly individuals.
